We continue to look at the implications of what we know as the transfiguration and how that watershed event affects our perspective of both our present reality and the eternal reality of which we are often oblivious. More than anything, the transfiguration accomplishes two things. First, there is that moment in which Jesus Christ is revealed in all his glory, bringing that greater reality to bear in the lives of those folks who'd begun to despair over Jesus explaining to them that he had to suffer and die and that this was all a part of a greater plan. The transfiguration provided a glimpse into the reality of that greater plan. Secondly, this event firmly fixed, in the disciples' hearts and minds exactly on whom they should be focused as they lived out their respective roles in this new revelation of the Kingdom. In this revelation, once more the father emphasized the singular importance of focusing on the son and only on the son.
