Since about the 5th century, Christians have celebrated the Transfiguration of our Lord. The revelation of Christ in the season of Epiphany is brought to a wondrous close as Christ manifests His glory on the holy mountain. The glory, the heaviness of divine splendor that shone forth there, shows also the magnitude of Christ’s death on the cross. It is God in human flesh who speaks with Moses and Elijah about His “Exodus”, that is, about His suffering and death and resurrection soon to follow. And wondrously, amazingly, it is the hour of His “Exodus”, His sacrificial death that Jesus speaks of as the hour of His glory (John 12:23). Risen from the grave the one who shines like the sun now brings the fruit of His cross to you in Word and water and bread and wine! With His gifts, He bestows upon you the light of His forgiveness and love! That’s the one thing needful! That’s the one gift worth sharing with another!
