The Transfiguration


Today, August 6 is the feast of the Transfiguration of our Lord.  We remember the revelation of Christ's Divine Glory on Mount Tabor before Peter, John and James.  Jesus' face became bright like the sun, His clothes were white as snow and Moses and Elijah appeared beside Him.   Moses represents the law and Elijah the prophets of the old covenant.

This event showed the disciples present that Jesus was the real deal, so to speak.  Jesus is God.  The brightness is a visual manifestation of His Divinity and the white-as-snow garments show His pureness.  He is man as well but a man without sin.

Read:

Matthew 17:1-6; Mark 9:1-8; Luke 9:28-36
