Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, "Greetings, Rabbi!" and kissed him.
Peter said to Jesus, "Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters--one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah."
"What do you want me to do for you?" Jesus asked him. The blind man said, "Rabbi, I want to see."
Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!"
