The Transfiguration
Affirmation on the road toward the Cross

When I was asked to teach on the Transfiguration during Crossroads Amsterdam's series through the book of Mark, my initial reaction was one of respectful trepidation. I wondered how I could do justice to such an awesome scene out of Jesus' life. As I dug in to study the passage, I learned much about the significance of what happened that day on that mountain in Galilee, both for the Jews of the First Century and also for us in the Twenty-first Century. This scene played a crucial role in the faith lives of Peter, James and John, and it has much to say to us about spiritual growth as well.
