The, the title given to an event in Jesus’s life in which he was “transfigured” (Gk. metamorphoô), Moses and Elijah appeared to him, and a voice spoke from heaven (Mark 9:2-8; Matt 17:1-8; Luke 9:28-36). The transfiguration has been understood as an unveiling of Jesus’s humanity to reveal his true form as the Son of God (John 1:14) or as a proleptic glimpse of his glory to be revealed at the parousia (2Pet 1:16-18).
