I went snorkeling on my honeymoon. From above, with your head out of water, the water just looks like water. When you put on your mask and dive, however, a whole new world can be seen: fish and plants in brilliant colors. That world was always there, of course, but I just couldn’t see it.
This is what the Mount of Transfiguration is about: Peter, James, and John are briefly permitted to see the normally inaccessible reality of the Kingdom of God.
