The Transfiguration Story

The transfiguration event commemorates one of Jesus’ miracles when he reveals His divinity to three of His closest disciples; Peter, James and John, by means of a miraculous and supernatural light. The disciples hear the voice of God, confirming Jesus as his son and telling all to listen to him (Mark 9:7). The transfiguration does not transform Jesus but rather reveals him as the Son of God and the prophesied Messiah.
