Peter & John Transform the Transfiguration
“So, you have a mind-picture of the Transfiguration.
Jesus the Christ, on the mount
…………and He seems to you all holy and glowy,
isn’t that what you see
…………when you close your eyes?
Let’s tell you what we saw –
imagine when a spacecraft is
……..nestled on its platform, ready to
take off from earth’s surface.
A 300-foot tall water tower has
………..of 300,00 gallons inside
and releases all that in a flash,
right before ignition & liftoff,
……..all that water charges
in a mad rush on to the platform
and the rocket launch heats up
…….that great & sudden flood
of surging water
so fast that it makes what looks like
……………a gigantic billowing
……………cloud of smoke
……………rising up from the ground.
But it is only water
vaporizing in that
………………….millisecond.

Want to know the reason for all this water and smoke?
because the sound waves at take-off
are
so loud, so intense
that they have to be
muffled.

That’s what the Transfiguration
was:
the great muffling of the Son of the Father’s
glory—
but custom-made for us.
And,
all we really saw was the vapor.”
