The Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord in 2015

The Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord is often referred to as the Apple Savior. Believers consecrate apples and honey and put them on the table. On this day we thank the Lord for the gifts of nature and remember the divine nature of Christ, his redeeming sacrifice and the miracle revealed on Mount Tabor.

History of the Transfiguration of the Lord

One day Christ ascended Mount Tabor along with his disciples: John, James and Peter. At the apex, the apostles suddenly saw how the Savior's face brightened, and his dusty clothes after the road became radiant and snow-white. They saw the divine image of the Son of God. Then two great prophets descended from the sky to the mountain: Elijah and Moses. They talked about the forthcoming sacrifice of Jesus, about his crucifixion and resurrection, about the redemption of the sins of all mankind.

The apostles offered their teacher to stay on Mount Tabor, but at that moment a radiant cloud came down to them, and the voice of the Lord commanded him to listen to his son in everything.

The church began to celebrate the Transfiguration of the Lord in the 4th century AD. According to the Gospel, the Transfiguration event happened 40 days before Easter, but in order not to interrupt Lent, it was postponed to summer. In addition, the feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord became an alternative to pagan worship.
