Mark 9:2-10

2009-02-18 — Some of you sharper geographical minds will no doubt observe that an ice axe is likely unnecessary on the Mount of Transfiguration. To this we can only try to explain that Ted had the axe written into his contract for this week. He's never been good with geography but he's got a cracker-jack agent.

BIBLE PASSAGE — Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no one on earth could bleach them. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, who were talking with Jesus. Then Peter said to Jesus, "Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." He did not know what to say, for they were terrified. Then a cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud there came a voice, "This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him!" Suddenly when they looked around, they saw no one with them any more, but only Jesus.

As they were coming down the mountain, he ordered them to tell no one about what they had seen, until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead. So they kept the matter to themselves, questioning what this rising from the dead could mean. — Transfiguration of Our Lord, Series B

    Doesn’t Elijah descend to anoint his successors, Jehu and Elisha?
