“Jesus in High Definition”
Matthew 17: 1 – 9
Today we celebrate Transfiguration Sunday, which concludes our Epiphany journey. Since January 8, we have heard Gospel Lessons that reveal the personhood of our Lord Jesus Christ, from the worship of the Magi when He was a child to the revelation of the nature and goal of Jesus’ salvation mission. Today, we join Jesus’ disciples Peter, James, and John in viewing Jesus’ glorious transfiguration and hearing God the Father endorsing Jesus, wrapped in human form as His beloved Son. May our festival worship lead us to embrace Jesus in all His glory and in all His humility, doing it all for us and for our salvation.
