In today’s Scripture, we see Jesus transformed, his holiness exposed through light and likeness to revered prophets of old. He stands on a mountaintop, where so many monumental events of Scripture occur. His clothes become a blinding, otherworldly white. Moses and Elijah, the ultimate character references for a Jewish leader, appear beside him. While this revelation of his identity is still limited to a few (on the way back down the mountain, he again tells them not to tell anyone!) and will not be fully revealed to all until his death and resurrection, this amazing moment on the mountaintop sends a big message about Jesus’ identity.
