Jesus went to the mountain knowing full well what awaited him in
Jerusalem – his betrayal, rejection and crucifixion. Jesus very likely
discussed this momentous decision to go to the cross with Moses
and Elijah. God the Father also spoke with Jesus and gave his
approval: This is my beloved Son; listen to him.

II DOMENICA DI QUARESIMA:
Nelled Scritture, la montagna è sempre il luogo della
rivelazione. Sono gli uomini come Mosè (Es 19) e Elia
(1Re 19) che Dio incontra. Si racconta anche che il
volto di Mosè venne trasfigurato da quell’incontro:
“Quando Mosè scese dal monte Sinai - le due tavole
della Testimonianza si trovavano nelle mani di Mosè
mentre egli scendeva dal monte - non sapeva che la
pelle del suo viso era diventata raggiante, poiché
aveva conversato con il Signore” (Es 34,29). La magnificenza della rivelazione divina si comunica anche a
coloro che la ricevono e diventano i mediatori della parola di Dio.
Gesù si mette a brillare come il sole sotto gli occhi di tre discepoli: questo lo
individua come colui che è l’ultimo a rivelare Dio, come colui che oltrepassa
tutti i suoi predecessori. Ciò è sottolineato ancor più dal fatto che Mosè ed
Elia appaio e si intrattengono con lui. Essi rappresentano la legge e i profeti, cioè la rivelazione divina prima di Gesù. Gesù è l’ultima manifestazione
di Dio. È quello che dimostra la nube luminosa - luogo della presenza divina (come in Es 19) - da dove
una voce designa Gesù come il servitore
regale di Dio (combinazione del salmo 2, 7 e di Isaia 42, 1). A ciò si aggiunge, in riferimento a Deuteronomio 18, 15, l’esortazione ad ascoltare
Gesù, ad ascoltare soprattutto il suo insegnamento morale.
