Question: In the Mount of Transfiguration, there appears Moses and Elijah to Jesus and the apostles. What was the state of Moses then? Does he presently have a glorified body or what? Knowing that Moses died years and years ago and that Jesus Christ is the firstfruit of those who will be glorified, will Moses still be resurrected in the coming of Christ?

Answer: Deuteronomy 34:6 tells us that no one knows where Moses was buried. Jude 9 tells us that there was a dispute between Michael and the devil over the body of Moses. These verses seem to suggest that something special happened to Moses after he died. Perhaps he was raised to life in anticipation of the coming of the Lord. Sadly, the Bible does not give us an abundance of information on this subject.
