AUGUST 6
THE FEAST OF THE TRANSFIGURATION OF OUR LORD
The Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ is celebrated each year on August 6th. The feast commemorates the transfiguration or Christ revealing the Fullness of Himself on Mount Tabor, when our Lord appeared in His full divine glory before the Apostles Peter, James, and John.
The event of the Transfiguration is recorded in the three Synoptic Gospels: Matthew 17:1-9, Mark 9:2-8, and Luke 9:28-36. Jesus took the Apostles Peter, James, and John with Him up a mountain, and while they were on the mountain Jesus was transfigured. He shone like the sun, and His garments became more than merely glistening white, radiating light as well.
Moses and Elijah appeared with Christ, talking to Him. Peter declared how good it was for them to be there and expressed the desire to build three booths for Moses, Elijah, and Jesus. This reference to the booths could imply that this occurred during the time of the Feast of Tabernacles when the Jews would be camping out in the fields for the grape harvest; for this Feast had acquired other associations in the course of its history, including the memory of the wanderings in the wilderness recorded in the Old Testament book of Exodus.
While Peter was speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them. A voice came from the cloud saying, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to Him.” When the disciples heard this they fell on their faces filled with awe. Jesus came to them and told them to not be afraid. When the three looked up they saw only Jesus.
As Jesus and His disciples came down the mountain, He told them not to speak of what they had seen until He had risen from the dead.

SANCTUARY LIGHT: No Request.
