The Transfiguration of Christ. Flemish School, undated.
“For it is God who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” ~2 Corinthians 4:6
This week is the final Sunday of Epiphany, called Transfiguration Sunday. This day celebrates the glorious revelation of God in Jesus Christ and Christ’s manifestation as the fulfillment of the law and the prophets. Jesus’ radiant appearance on the mountaintop evokes the devouring fire of the glory of the LORD at Mount Sinai in Exodus 24:17.
The transition from the hope offered to the world at the arrival of Jesus into the world fades, as we begin the trip to Calvary where the Messiah is crucified. The recognition of Jesus as the Son of God helps the disciples understand his words about his short time with them and in this world. When we recognize Jesus as our personal Saviour then we too find that our lives are changed as well.
