When the disciples first begin to follow Jesus, they don't know exactly who he is and what his mission is all about. It's as if they see him through a glass darkly- blurry and indistinct. It's only after his resurrection that the picture comes into focus and the disciples finally see Jesus as the Eternal Word of God made Flesh. There are, however, individual moments on their journey with the Lord when they catch small glimpses or insights into his true identity. Today's reading from Luke's Gospel is all about one such moment of special revelation. While three of Jesus' closest disciples are praying with him on a mountaintop, they see their Lord transfigured, engulfed in the glory of God. Today, we'll take a closer look at this story.
