Transfiguration Sunday is 14 February 2021.
The Transfiguration of Jesus is a story told in the New Testament. There are obvious versions in Matthew, Mark and Luke’s Gospels.
During the Transfiguration, Jesus radiantly shines in glory upon a mountain. He has gone there with 3 of his disciples – James, John and Peter – to pray. The disciples see Jesus begin to shine with bright rays of light. Jesus is then joined by the Old Testament prophets, Moses and Elijah, and he speaks with them.
The version of this story which forms the basis of Rev. Geoff McKee’s sermon here is from Mark. The Transfiguration – viewed in the light of Jesus’ resurrection – provides a glimpse of the glory that exists beyond the strife and the struggle.
