THE TRANSFIGURATION


Christ stands triumphant and glorious in a golden mandorla.  His face is tranquil and at peace, with down-cast eyes, in a moment of contemplation and inner peace.


Below the summit of Mount Tabor are representations of Elijah and Moses, representing the Law and the Prophets, and holding the tablets of the Law and scrolls representing the word of the prophets.  They acknowledge Christ as the predicted Messiah of the Old Testament that has now come to pass.  


As Christ reveals his divinity the light is blinding for the three disciples who wait further down the mountain.  They cower in fear and reel in confusion and panic.  


“The Glory of the Godhead shines forth from the face of Christ.”
