‘Jesus sets up for his disciples what I consider the central spiritual experience of Jesus’ life—the “Transfiguration.”
He makes a one-of-a-kind statement that some of his followers were to soon see “the kingdom of God has come with power.”
In no other situation does Jesus make the claim that what they are about to see is a power-filled picture of the realm of God manifest in the here and now.
Immediately the gospel writers move to saying that “six days later” Jesus was transfigured. If we want a picture of the Kingdom of God, Jesus says, here it is!’
