The transfiguration pericope in the Gospel of Mark (Mk 9:2–8) is seen as a major enigma in New Testament scholarship. In fact this narrative, with its peculiar mixture of fascination and disconcertment, poses considerable challenges to the exegete. What type of text is it and what about the historical and Christological reality behind this narrative? Following an introductory chapter, Adrian Wypadlo begins with a detailed analysis of the individual verses of the text, dealing in particular with the narratological aspects. Then he compares this text with the concepts of transformation in the Hellenistic-Jewish and pagan environment of the New Testament. Lastly Wypadlo examines the conspicuous constellation between Jesus, Elija and Moses in Mk 9:4f. The author's goal is to show that, along with the baptism pericope (Mk 1:9–11), Mk 9:2–8 is the key legitimation narrative within Markan Christology.The transfiguration pericope in the Gospel of Mark (Mk 9:2–8) is seen as a major enigma in New Testament scholarship.
