Recently I had the opportunity to be in Rome. I visited the Vatican Museum and St. Peter’s Basilica. The museum contains the incredible painting by Raphael of the Transfiguration. http://www.artbible.info/art/large/613.html. It was reproduced in mosaic within St. Peter’s Basilica. If you look at the painting, you will notice that there are really two scenes depicted. The first scene is the Transfiguration itself, where the transfigured Jesus, accompanied by Moses (The Law) and Elijah (The Prophets) is revealed to the apostles Peter, James, and John.
