We read in Mark's account:
"Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no one on earth could bleach them. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, who were talking with Jesus." Mark 9:2-4
We note that Jesus took only his inner circle of disciples and they alone were privileged to experience the glory of their Lord! The narrative continues where Peter asks about making dwellings for them so that they can stay on the mountain. It doesn't come to be. They descend from the top of the mountain and continue on in his mission.
We are those reading about this event - after the fact. This event can bring confidence to us about Jesus' being. Perhaps we will even experience a spiritually exciting moments for ourselves during the course of our lives.
I invite you to reflect on this event in our Lord's life as you prepare for Sunday's worship.
