John, Luke 9:28-36
This reflection is just for fun. Nothing too serious or heavy, because Sunday is a feast day not a fast day, especially during Lent.
30 “Suddenly the disciples saw two men, Moses and Elijah, talking to Jesus.”
Let me ask you a question – how did those three disciples know that the two men talking to Jesus were Elijah and Moses? Did Moses and Elijah have on name tags? Was it their accents or their old-fashioned clothes that gave them away? To the best of my knowledge there were no cameras in 1200 BCE when Moses was leading the people out of Egypt, and no cell phones snapped pictures of Elijah whipping up on the 400 prophets of Baal. If the Israelites looked and dressed so much alike that the only way to identify Jesus in a crowd was by giving him a kiss, then how could Peter, John or James have known who the two men in the vision were?
The scriptures reveal God’s plan for the world but also God’s sense of humor too. Smile & Laugh, God loves you.
