Matthew 17:8 And when they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus himself alone. * * * * * * * * First, the disciples went up the mountain with Jesus. Then they saw Jesus glowing like the sun. Then they saw Jesus chatting it up with Moses and Elijah. And then they saw Jesus alone. Freaky. The transfiguration is one of the more freaky events of the New Testament. The ones who were eye witnesses told us what they saw and that first it was so good they wanted to stay on the mountain and then it was so scary they didn't know where to run or who to turn to. And then there was Jesus alone. Works for me. * * * * * * * * May we look up from the clutter of Monday and see you. Amen.
