On a high mountain, a change came over Jesus, and his clothes became shinning white. Mark 9:2-3
Every year on August 6, the church celebrates one of the most dramatic moments in the Gospel, the transfiguration of Jesus. Peter, James and John who were the first disciples, followers of Christ climbed a high mountain with their master where Jesus was suddenly transfigured before their eyes. The feast of transfiguration is meant to encourage us to have great hope both about ourselves and our destiny in Christ. These three disciples also saw Elijah and Moses talking with Jesus. Both Moses and Elijah represented the law and prophets.
Then a cloud appeared and covered them with it shadow, and a voice came from the cloud, “This is my own dear son – listen to him !” As they came down from the mountain, Jesus ordered them not to tell anyone about this because his hour had not come until the son of Man had risen from death.
The transfiguration of Jesus was indeed a glimpse of heaven glory and hope. The hope and glory of eternal life after the resurrection of the death for being a true disciple of Jesus Christ. A believer who listens, acts and lives the life of Jesus Christ, our lord.
The transfiguration of Jesus is being able to see that there is light despite of all the darkness.
