Of all the prophets why were Moses and Elijah chosen to be seen with Jesus on the mount?

On the mount of transfiguration why Moses and Elijah? Were they really there or was it a vision?

 

 

Thanks for asking a question on www.thisisyourbible.com.

Moses and Elijah were the two chosen to be a part of the vision [ Moses and Elijah were actually dead but the apostles were given a vision of them] because they, more than any other represented the Law [Moses] and the prophets [Elijah].  Both of them experienced rejection by their people and yet came back to save them. In this their experience was like that of the Lord Jesus and would have been a great comfort to him.
