Mark 9:9 - Now as they came down from the mountain, He commanded them that they should tell no onethe things they had seen, till the Son of Man had risen from the dead.

Jesus didn't command them not to tell anyone what they had seen; He commanded them not to tell anyone YET. It was quite common for Jesus to teach his "inner circle" something that they were not to proclaim until later; after either His resurrection or ascension.

John 16:4 - But these things I have told you, that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I did not say to you at the beginning, because I was with you.

It's also quite easy to understand why Jesus sometimes told people to remain silent about His miracles; sensationalism could actually hinder His ministry, so He occasionally took steps to avoid it. There's nothing "strange" about it. It was simply a matter of prudence.

This is the transfiguration, when Peter, James and John saw Jesus change his appearance and then saw him taking to Elijah and Moses.
There is no reason given in The Bible for this strange request. However, it is a feature of Mark's Gospel that Jesus asked people not to tell others, when they witnessed a miracle.


Another view, held by some scholars, is that if no one had heard about the transfiguration when Mark's Gospel was written, then the author's credibility might have been questioned. The author could avoid this by writing that the disciples, the only witnesses to the transfiguration, were warned by Jesus not to tell anyone else until after he had risen. Jesus' permission to tell others after the resurrection would then be seen as fulfilled by the gospel itself.

Are Enoch and Elijah still alive?

Elijah is no longer alive. He was ascended to heaven. But was promised to return before Jesus did. If he did not turn the hearts of the children jesus would have to die. Malachi 4:5&6 Jesus also said "Elias has truly come and must restore all things, he was killed by his own people. No one even knew it. Likewise so shall the Son of Man"(Jesus). Peter ,john(not the Baptist) and james were with jesus when Elijah has died and visit him with Moses. God came and the disciples fell to the ground. Elijah returned as a man , That man was John the Baptist. Elijah was John the Baptist in the second coming. Matthew 17:1-13 Vs. 11 and 12 are in red. So very important. Jesus was with Moses as a spirit which means he dies.
