Excerpt from book: III THE TRANSFIGURED CHRIST But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep; and when they were awake, they saw his glory. ?Luke 9:32.

In the midst of His eternal workings it has become supreme in significance, for on it is to be realized the eternal purpose. Here One appeared bearing the image of the Most High; here God Himself became incarnate.

Sometimes the tragedy is deepe...
