Homily - What the Eyewitnesses Said and Did (Bede)
FOR WE DID NOT FOLLOW
cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ..
As we celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration of our Lord, it is critical that we understand what the eyewitnesses tell us they knew about this event!
WE HEARD HEARD this voice borne from heaven, for we were with him on the holy mountain...
WE WERE EYEWITNESSES of his majesty. For when he received honor and glory from God the Father and the voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory,
“This is my beloved Son,d with whom I am well pleased...”
AND WE HAVE THE PROPHETIC word made more sure...
YOU WILL DO WELL to pay attention to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
SO WHAT DID the eyewitnesses do?
They offered up their lives as a testimony to his glory!
And, the Apostle Peter was crucified in Rome under Emperor Nero Augustus Caesar.
But, because he thought himself unworthy to be crucified in the same way as Jesus, he asked that he be crucified upside down!
MAY WE BE FOUND worthy to follow in their footsteps...
