Elijah and Moses are the two larger figures on the right standing behind the three Apostles.

Moses represents the Law and Elijah the Prophets of the Old Testament. Without the Old Testament, there would not be the New Testament.

Christ represents the true Light

According to the Fathers, the eyes of the Apostles opened and saw the Light which never dims on the face of Christ. Later those eyes would see the Saviour tortured and put to death.
