Jesus Christ Superstar – Transfiguration of Jesus B

2 Kings 2:1-12

2 Corinthians 4:3-6

Mark 9:2-9

I have not seen Jesus Christ Superstar but if there was an event that made Jesus look like a superstar, this was it. His disciples have come to understand some of the greatness of Jesus. They had seen miracles, heard incredible teaching and lived with His compassionate life.

But nothing in their experience would prepare the disciples for this moment. In a moment of transcendence, Jesus is transformed into something of His glory with His Father. What a statement of Christ’s superiority and worthiness of worship!

Why does Jesus want them to wait? Why is transfiguration secondary to resurrection? Perhaps it would be too much for others to hear.  They wouldn’t understand. Perhaps our focus would be too much on a supernatural figure who isn’t human. Perhaps if others knew about the Transfiguration, they would resist the Crucifixion. perhaps Jesus is to be known in His scars than in His transcendence.

  1. I have a hunch that when we see Jesus that He will have a wound on His side and His hands and head. I heard a saying once that the only man made thing in heaven would be those scars. How deep is that? God is Great and His glory endures for ever.
