The Church gives us the Transfiguration story on the Second Sunday of Lent.
Here on Transfiguration mountain we see three figures. These three figures are iconic figures. The three figures are Moses, Elijah and Jesus.
In this story of the Transfiguration, the face of the law and the face of the prophets meet the one who is the face of the good news.
The face of the law, Moses, and the face of the prophets, Elijah, -- the two who have come closest to seeing God -- are right here on "Transfiguration Mountain" talking to Jesus, the face of the Good News. And it is all recorded in today's gospel lesson.
