Seeing Jesus transfigured, the Apostles had a glimpse of the complete truth about him - about his literally being ‘one with the Father’. This sight of Jesus’ divine reality was meant to help them cope with the dark events ahead.

This episode from the Gospel reminds us that followers of Jesus Christ do not usually understand everything. We do not always notice what is in front of us, and even when we do, the experience can fade away. The whole of the Gospel, the whole of the Bible is, in fact, like the Transfiguration; a glimpse of the power and presence of a loving God in our world.
