Jesus appears to go through this amazing transfiguration, but really who is it that is being transformed?

February 7, 2016 - Transfiguration of our Lord
"Privilege". Text is from Luke 9:28-36
Good morning to you my sisters and brothers, saints and sinners, disciples of Christ and children of God.
When talking about the transfiguration of Jesus, I find myself cautious not to substitute it with the term transformation, which means a thorough or dramatic essential change in one's self. While one may, upon looking into this account, conclude that a transformation is taking place, it is not Jesus himself being transformed, but more three disciples, Peter, John and James.
