Luke 9:28-43

This is the story of the Transfiguration. In Luke's version, it is clear that Jesus' transfiguration into a shining figure is not about his holiness but about his martyrdom -- his “exodus,” literally -- his willingness to give his life. In the midst of this experience, so confusing even to Jesus' closest companions, the message from God is clear: LISTEN TO HIM! As we prepare for Lent, how do we listen to Jesus in our real, 21st Century lives?
