The Transfiguration / Giovanni Bellini / 1500

F&FW is making an occasional feature a regular feature, to wit: Sundays we will highlight a work of art. We will attempt, as here, to relate the work to the calendar. Monday we return to local food, news and bad, dad jokes.

The Second Sunday of Lent
Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother,
and led them up a high mountain by themselves.
And he was transfigured before them;
his face shone like the sun
and his clothes became white as light.
And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them,
conversing with him.

The Gospel of St. Matthew 17:1
