That’s what happened to three of Jesus’ students that day on the mountain top…
They looked over at their friend - their teacher – and saw his clothes began to glow.
They looked at his face - a face they had seen a hundred times before. Now they had to blink to catch a glint of His glory.
His face was shining as bright as the sun on a cloudless day.
Jesus told them this would happen. He said that if they denied themselves, picked up their crosses and followed him, they would not be disappointed.
Six days later they got a glimpse of glory!
Just a peek and then off the mountain and back into the valley!
In old age, Peter still remembered…
We were eyewitnesses of His majesty. For he received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to Him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with Him I am well-pleased.” We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with Him on the sacred mountain.
