Transfiguration of Our Lord
06 February 2022
Jesus Is Transfigured and Manifests His Glory
The Lord appeared to Moses in the light of the burning bush (Exodus 3.1–14). Later Moses’ face would shine with the light of God’s glory when he came down from Mount Sinai (Exodus 34.29–35). At the Transfiguration, Moses and Elijah appeared with the One who is the Light of Light Himself (St. Matthew 17.1–9). Jesus’ glory as God shines with brilliant splendor in and through His human nature. By this epiphany, our Lord confirmed the prophetic word (2 Peter 1.16–21), revealing that He is the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets. He manifested His majesty as the eternal Son of the Father, and He wonderfully foreshowed our adoption as sons (Collect). We who have been baptized into Christ’s body are given a glimpse of the glory that we will share with Him in the resurrection on the Last Day.
Altar Flowers are given to the glory of God by Mr. & Mrs. Brice Ofsansky in honor of their wedding anniversary.
