Description

The story of Jesuss transfiguration, as recorded in the synoptic gospels, has proved to be a fruitful source of theological reflection since the time of the Early Church. Although Christs luminous and glorious transformation is the central event, the transfiguration story possesses a number of other interesting facets, including the role of the Trinitarian Persons, the transformation of the disciples, and the presence of Moses and Elijah. The story also raises a number of Christological issues, including the relationship between Christs divinity and humanity and the nature of His body before and after His resurrection. The narrative placement of this event before Christs passion, death, and resurrection invites reflection on soteriological and eschatological themes as well. This fairly brief episode in Christs life thus unites a number of closely related themes in a short, dense, and very rich narrative.
