February 14 2021 – Transfiguration of the Lord
Mark 9:2-9 – occurs six days after Jesus promised that some of the disciples would see God’s kingdom with power (Mark 9:1). He takes Peter, James, and John to a mountain where He is transfigured with the glory of God. The presence of Elijah leads the disciples to think the Messiah’s earthly reign is imminent, but Jesus reminds them that He will suffer first. The story of the transfiguration is also recorded in Matthew 17:1–13 and Luke 9:28–36.
