Jesus takes Peter, James and John up to the mountain where they experience the full glory of God. It’s a peak experience of seeing both Moses and Elijah. Then, Jesus is transfigured in their presence. As they return, Jesus instructs them, “Do not tell the vision to anyone until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead.” Imagine the disciples’ confusion, first, at not being able to share an amazing experience, and secondly at not fully understanding what “being raised from the dead” meant. Sometimes the experiences of God’s grace in our lives are simply meant for us to ponder and express gratitude for in prayer. They are too close, fragile, or complex to share until the right time – even with loved ones – until we have gained wisdom and perspective.
