transfigurationThis Sunday, the Gospel Mk 9:2-10 proclaims the story of Jesus’ Transfiguration. The Transfiguration occurs after Peter’s confession that Jesus is the Messiah and Jesus’ prediction about his passion. Jesus takes Peter, James, and John to a high mountain where they will encounter Elijah and Moses appearing with Jesus.

Elijah and Moses are significant figures in the history of Israel. Moses led the Israelites from slavery in Egypt and received from Yahweh the Ten Commandments. In appearing with Jesus at his Transfiguration, Moses represents the Law that guides the lives of the Jewish people.

Elijah is one of the most important prophets of Israel. He helped the Israelites stay faithful to Yahweh. Some Jews believed that Elijah’s return would signal the coming of the Messiah for the Jewish people. The appearance of these two figures from Israel’s history with Jesus signifies Jesus’ continuity with the Law and with the prophets and that Jesus is the fulfillment of all that was promised to the people of Israel

.In his Transfiguration, we see an anticipation of the glory of Jesus’ Resurrection. Jesus instructs the disciples to tell no one what they have seen until after the Son of Man has risen from the dead. The disciples are confused as they wonder what Jesus means by rising from the dead. The disciples will not understand Jesus’ Transfiguration until they also witness his passion and death.

The Lenten season is one long retreat to prepare us for the renewal of our baptismal vows, as the church prepares candidates for Baptism at Easter.

We might adapt, the disciples question as part of our Lenten meditations. What does rising from the dead mean for those who will enjoy the new life of Baptism for the first time? What does it mean in our lives?

Since we are at the beginning of Lent, we can ponder the question for the next few weeks and allow God, through our penitential practices, help us come to realize what rising from the dead means to us.
