Our text tells of a blackout. The transfiguration story begins with Jesus being transformed – dazzling. But then there was a blackout. Jesus is covered by a cloud.
What do we do when Jesus is “covered” in our lives, when we don’t see him or feel him as closely as we would want? God says; “This is my Son. Listen to him”. That’s it! That’s all we need to know when life is in blackout mode: Jesus’ words are enough.
