Sunday Readings: Genesis 22:1–2,9-13,15–18; Romans 8:31–34; Mark 9:2–10
               For Catechists and Teachers
Scripture Background
The Gospel of the Transfiguration places Jesus in the midst of Land of Israel’s history. He stands in the company of Moses and Elijah, two holy leaders from Israel’s past. Peter, James, and John see Jesus in shining, white garments that suggest his divinity and Resurrection. They will follow him as holy leaders in the Christian community. The voice from the cloud affirms Jesus is God’s beloved Son, Mark’s repeated theme. The same God who has acted in Israel’s history comes among us in Jesus; his followers continue this history as do we.
Connecting Scripture and Doctrine
Visions explores how faith and service can transform our world. “Christ’s Trans guration aims at strengthening the apostles’ faith in anticipation of his Passion” (CCC, 568). “What was visible in Jesus’ earthly life leads to the invisible mystery of his divine sonship and redemptive mission” (CCC, 515). God chose Abraham and made a covenant with him and his descendants (CCC, 72).
