Second Sunday of Lent

March 4, 2007

Readings.  Gospel: Luke 9:28b-36

        The transfiguration is one of the unique revelations in Jesus' life.  It ultimately supports His Divinity.  After this event, Peter, James and John no longer question who He is, but why He isn't proofing His Messianism.  During the course of Lent, depicting the last weeks of Jesus' life, Jesus is foretelling His Passion, Crucifixion, and Death.  This is unimaginable to Peter, James and John who witness the transfiguration.  Many Christians also struggle with the concept of the defeated Christ.  But both the Passion of Christ and His Transcendent Nature is what makes Christianity unique.  If He is only human, it won't be enough for us.  If He is only transcendent, He won't be enough for us.  Therefore Christ is really unique.

At one time, it was assumed that leaders "had the answers." But in all fields, he said "no one has all the answers"; problems must be resolved "in a process in which all must participate."
