The mystical transfiguration of Christ

The story of the Transfiguration of Christ has beguiled the Christian mind for centuries. It is the clearest New Testament evocation of mystical experience, the experience of spiritual things within the ordinary and the keen conviction that the spiritual reality is greater and more beautiful than ordinary experience. “Mystical” means there has been contact with a Person: the person of God.

Listen to Him

One of the most unsettling accounts in the Bible, that of Abraham being asked by God to sacrifice his son, ironically shows His goodness and love for us. If we put our faith in God, if we listen to God, if we obey God, we will be rewarded. A few of Jesus’ disciples witnessed it with the Transfiguration, and we too can witness it if we trust in God’s will for us, if we have faith.

The terrible Aqedah

The story of the Aqedah, the Binding of Isaac, haunted the Israelite religious imagination. In it is contained one of the most important spiritual lessons in the Bible: everything we are and everything we have belongs, finally, to God. Knowing this is our liberation.

Speaking to Moses and Elijah

For a Jew of Jesus’ time, Moses and Elijah would symbolize the Law and the Prophets, the two major divisions of the Scriptures. Jesus’ conversation with them during the Transfiguration symbolizes something that is emphasized throughout the New Testament, namely, that Jesus fulfills, brings to completion, both the Law and the prophets. He fulfills the promise implicit in the Old Testament.
