Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John,
and led them up a high mountain apart, by themselves.
What’s six days earlier is what this story is about:
Jesus pointing to the cross.
Six days is a bit short, not a full week yet, without a seventh day,
a darkness-and-light, radiance and shadow, a dying and rising.
Jesus accepted the cross; Peter objected.
But God says, “Listen to him.”
This is not just glory,
this is the light of Easter.
Lit by the light of resurrection,
go the way of the cross.
The Risen One
is ready to be crucified.
