In a short while Jesus will undergo both trial and crucifixion. Having seen Jesus in His divine glory at the transfiguration should serve to assure the disciples that Jesus is the Lord of glory and that He will rise again, just as He said.

    This next Biblical story is never included in the lectionary series, and I feel badly about that because the next story is the key to the transfiguration story. The disciples and Jesus came off the mountain, and they came right down to the bottom of the valley. While some monastic institutions are suffering a decline in traditional vocations, many Christians are exploring monastic lifestyles. This book introduces The Community of the Transfiguration in Australia, the story of a new monastic community and an inspiring source of hope for the world at another time of spiritual, social, and ecological crisis.

In this concise study, John Perry enables the reader to see that the Transfiguration story does not recount an actual event, but was created to teach an important ". So, I invite us to look again at the story of the Transfiguration, to receive it as a story that our forebears passed on because they found it to be transformative.

I invite us to look at the story again for this kind of truth and to let our [others] worry about the details. The story begins, as many of us know, rather remarkably. The transfiguration of Jesus is a story told in the New Testament when Jesus is transfigured and becomes radiant in glory upon a mountain.

The Synoptic Gospels (Matthew –8, Mark –8, Luke –36) describe it, and the Second Epistle of Peter also refers to it (2 Peter –18).It has also been hypothesized that the first chapter of the Gospel of John alludes to it.

The Story of the Transfiguration of the Lord All three Synoptic Gospels tell the story of the Transfiguration (Matthew ; Mark ; Luke ). With remarkable agreement, all three place the event shortly after Peter’s confession of faith that Jesus is the Messiah and Jesus’ first prediction of his passion and death.

This event, known as “The Transfiguration,” has long been regarded as one of the most important events in Jesus’ life. It is connected in one way or another to many other events in the stories about him and plays a central theological role because it connects him more explicitly to Moses and Elijah.

The Sunday Gospel presents us with an impressive image of the glorified Christ. The story of the Transfiguration is concerned with the identity of Jesus. The few details that are given are highly significant. We are told that it happened on a mountain- in the bible the mountain is a place of divine manifestation.

Other stories that use this motif are the Cinderalla stories which are found in the folk literature of almost every culture in the world.

All of these stories have something to do with transfiguration, the revelation of the” real” that is hidden by a covering that is a shadow of reality or that hides reality all together.

Chilton, Bruce D. “The Transfiguration: Dominical Assurance and Apostolic Vision,” NTS 27 ()   The Transfiguration of Jesus Christ. This biblical event appears in each of the Gospel books as an important moment in the life of Jesus and evidence of his divinity. After Jesus performs a series of miracles and foretells His own death, Jesus leads just three of his disciples, Peter, James and John, to a "high mountain." This is where the.

The book argues that the transfiguration functions as an epiphany revealing Jesus' true identity and also an apocalyptic vision, depicting God's transforming future. A chapter is devoted to each of the four New Testament narratives of the transfiguration, setting the story within the wider literary and theological framework of the text.

Lessons from Jesus’ Transfiguration (Part 4) I believe the LORD has taught us very important lessons from the story of the transfiguration of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. In the last edition we learnt that our choice by the Lord to be his followers is a great privilege which should be taken seriously.

If the Transfiguration is the manifestation of the glory of God in Christ, who spoke more often on this theme than John. This apostle, who saw the transfigured Lord and heard the Father's voice claiming Him as His Son, is the very one that wrote, "we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father" ().

For an extended discussion of the literary and theological themes shared in the Transfiguration story with Old Testament scripture and other Jewish writings, see A. Moses, Matthew’s Transfiguration Story and Jewish-Christian Controversy (Sheffield: Sheffield Academic Press, ), esp.

50– 8. Understanding The Transfiguration. Matthew (Scanned from Guardian of Truth, App.#) The transfiguration of Jesus (recorded in Matthew 17 and its parallels) is a unique scene in the gospels.

There he was transfigured before them. 3 His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them. 4 And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus.

Now if you have read this account from Matthew, you will note that this solves a difficulty that Matthew’s account raises. For in Matthew, the story of the Transfiguration begins with the next verse in Mark: After six days Jesus took with him Peter, and James, and John.
