Came and Went Before; Now Appears and Vanishes

In 07 Observations on 2011/06/09 at 9:00 AM

There is no doubt that when the Apostles saw Jesus of Nazareth, their Lord, ……..this experience broke the limits of the normal and made these ordinary men commit themselves to Him in an extraordinary manner for the rest of their lives.

He told them he had come and that he would go away but come again, yet now we appeared suddenly (and disappeared) not just a spirit but the same bodily Lord they had lived with for three years.

Jesus was transformed in an incomprehensible manner.  He was really bodily alive and his wounds showed themselves clearly to their corporal eyes.  They could touch Him, but He was transformed.

The Word of God had become flesh in the Incarnation and by his transfiguration in His Resurrection, he remained man forever.  His humanity accompanies Him forever into eternal glory.

Jesus Christ is the God of the Resurrection.  He is now supremely divine and human and now man can believe that man is not only human but has an eternal destiny which will achieved when he too rises from the dead and we share in His Transfiguration.

When we partake of the Holy Eucharist by eating His body and drinking His blood, we are already participating in this transfiguration

In resurrection, the entire person is re-created by the power of God.  We end the Creed of the Apostles with: “I believe in the Resurrection of the Body and life everlasting. Amen.”
