Who is Jesus? That’s the real question that the disciples are pondering as they journey with the Lord to the mountain of the transfiguration. The disciples professed Jesus to be the “Messiah” the anointed liberating king. But they still hadn’t learnt what Jesus came to liberate them from. Jesus reeducates his disciples about what God’s kingdom is really all about by explaining how it comes through suffering and sacrifice rather than through strength and conquest.
