Options

A)
prophets and apostles
B)
prohets and the law
C)
Spirit and the word
D)
kings and the judges

The correct answer is B.

Explanation:

At the transfiguration, Jesus took Peter, James, and John up a mountain where he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became dazzling white. Moses and Elijah appeared and talked with Jesus. This event indicates the significance of the prophets and the law which is represented by Option B. The law refers to the Ten Commandments and other commandments given to Moses by God, while the prophets were messengers of God who spoke to the people on His behalf. Moses and Elijah were two of the greatest prophets of the Old Testament, and their appearance with Jesus shows that He is the fulfillment of both the law and the prophets.

Jesus came not to abolish the law, but to fulfill it (Matthew 5:17). He also said that He came to fulfill the prophecies of the Old Testament (Luke 24:44). The transfiguration event shows that Jesus is the promised Messiah who was foretold by the prophets and who came to fulfill the law. Thus, the appearance of Elijah and Moses at the transfiguration signifies the significance of the prophets and the law, which is the correct answer, Option B.
