The Transfiguration – Sunday II of Lent
In Luke 9.28-36 Jesus was transfigured in the presence of three disciples, Peter and John and James. Was it a mere show of power? What was it about and what did it mean? Our Lord had already told his disciples that he would suffer and be put to death. He then encouraged them to follow the path of his suffering when he tells them to take up their cross and follow Him, and elsewhere says: “ …those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it.” (Matthew 16.24).
