)” (Luke 9:28-33, NIV) Luke’s last comment — that Peter did not know what he was saying — has prompted a lot of speculation since it implies that there was something wrong with Peter… If you wish, I will make three tents (tabernacles) here, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (Matthew 17:1-8) In this passage, Apostle Peter unknowingly As God revealed his glory to Moses on Mt.Sinai, he was revealing it through the son to his three closest disciples Peter, James and John with Moses also being there .

Peter blurted: Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, I will make three tabernacles here, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.

Why did Peter want to build tabernacles? Let us make three shelters --- one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah. Peter suggests that the disciples make three tabernacles—-one for Jesus, one for Moses, and one for Elijah. He was asking 5 WHILE HE WAS STILL SPEAKING, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is My Son, the Beloved, in whom I have found My delight. 4 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You are willing, I will make three tents here, one for You and one for Moses and one for Elijah.
