TRANSFIGURATION Lectionary #614B

A bright, shining cloud is one of the signs of God’s presence in the Bible. Another sign of the divine presence is God’s word spoken through the Torah and the prophets. When both signs surround Jesus, he appears, at the very least, as a messenger from God and, possibly, a special sign of God’s presence among us.

Daniel 7:9-10, 13-14. Daniel's vision of the heavenly court, centered on the Ancient One whose whole being is light, includes the presence of a mysterious figure whose name is translated as “a Son of man.” This figure is given everlasting dominion over the earth and all peoples.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (96) 97
An enthronement psalm, sung to praise the Lord as king and to give thanks that the divine kingdom is full of joy.

2 Peter 1:16-19. The remarkable experience of the Transfiguration is evoked to give Christians under persecution a reason to hope.

Mark 9:2-10. Jesus is revealed as the completion of the Torah (Moses) and the prophets (Elijah). Peter, as usual, gets the message wrong and wants to make a permanent encampment out of the experience. The voice of God from the cloud (a sign of the divine presence) reveals Jesus’ identity as God’s “beloved Son.” Mark’s account includes a reference to the “messianic secret”—though there are signs that reveal Jesus’ identity during his ministry, he orders people to keep quiet about them until after the resurrection.
