The Transfiguration And Resurrection Of Jesus (Matthew 17:1-8)
Stained glass window situated in the nave of the Cathedral
Jesus took his disciples Peter, James, and John to the top of a high mountain where they witness a change in his appearance, his face becoming bright, and his clothes a dazzling white.
There Moses, holding the tablets of the law, and Elijah, join with him and talk with him. The voice of God declares “This is my beloved Son”. In the window, Moses appears on the left of Jesus, and Elijah on his right. The resurrection is seen in the lower half of the window.
On the third day, after the death of Jesus on the cross, the tomb is found empty and Jesus appears to his disciples.
We celebrate the resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday every year, and it is the most important day of the Christian calendar.
