The transfiguration story is a difficult one to grasp.
However, perhaps we need to look at in a different way. Instead of looking at it like a journalist, trying to decipher the who, what, when, why and where, look at it like an abstract painting. Admire its beauty, and the meaning will come to you.
The transfiguration is the ultimate reality of Jesus breaking through to the physical world. God’s power is all we can perceive with our human perception. But God will give you space to accept the presence of God. And when we do, we will experience something indescribably beautiful.
