Transfiguration and mutual self-mediation

The Transfiguration - the gospel of tomorrow is from Luke! - I was thinking is a mutual self-mediation moment. And Fred Lawrence's famous phrase: the coming to light of the self is at once the coming to light of the tradition. Rossi de Gasperis who points out that only the gospel of Luke speaks of Moses and Elijah in their glory with Jesus in his glory: Gesu' glorioso tra Mose' ed Elia gloriosi. And goes on to say that Jesus can be understood in a thousand ways, but only in the light of the Old Testament can he be understood perfectly, properly: his glory shines. And the OT can also be understood in a thousand ways, but only in the light of Jesus does it come to its peak and fulfilment, it becomes glorious.
