Tabor: Conclusion

(by Teresa Petrozzi - translated by Raphael Bonanno ofm)

The splendor of Mt Tabor is not found merely in its natural beauty, considerable as that may be. It is not unearthed in the archaeological proofs and scientific truth of its stones,potsherds and inscriptions. It is not discovered in the important biblical history that involved this mountain in the Old Testament. Its radiant splendor emanates from the Lord Jesus Christ transfigured in this holy place. It originates in the grace of the place. Even St. Peter himself seemed to sense this spiritual reality when he said: “Lord, it is good for us to be here.” He realized there was something special about this holy ground and he did not want to leave it. “Let us build three tents, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” Peter never forgot this experience because he remembers it later in his old age in his Second Letter (II Pt 1: 17-18): “For Jesus received honor and glory from God the Father when that unique declaration came to him from the majestic glory,’This is my Son, my beloved, with whom I am well pleased.’ We ourselves heard this voice come from heaven while we were with him on the holy mountain”. We hope this site has helped to capture some of the wonder of Peter’s unforgettable experience on Mt Tabor.
