    4th Luminous Mystery, "The Transfiguration" (by Lodovico Carracci), Matt. 17:1-8

  • Ilya Paripsa

    The Transfiguration by Lodovico Carracci 1594. The Transfiguration of Jesus is an episode in the New Testament narrative in which Jesus is transfigured (or metamorphosed) and becomes radiant upon a mountain. The event acts as a further revelation of the identity of Jesus as the Son of God to some of his disciples. The Transfiguration is one of the five major milestones in the gospel narrative of the life of Jesus, the others being Baptism, Crucifixion, Resurrection, and Ascension.

After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them. His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them. And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus. Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” ~ Mark 9:2-7
