Transfiguration of Our Lord

posted Feb 5, 2016, 1:33 PM by Russell D. Hampton
The Sundays after the Epiphany began with Jesus’ baptism and end with three of his disciples having a vision of his transfiguration.  In Luke’s account, the conversation about Jesus’ suffering and death is enclosed in a dazzling foreshadowing of the resurrection.  God affirms Jesus’ identity, the disciples are stunned speechless, and Jesus resumes his mission with a demonstration of his power over evil.  Transfiguration will be celebrated on Sunday, February 7.  On that day we will bury the “Alleluia” as we enter into the solemn time of Lent.
