Carving of the Transfiguration, at the Pere Marquette Gallery of the Saint Louis University Museum of Art, in Saint Louis, Missouri.
We did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we had been eyewitnesses of his majesty.
For he received honor and glory from God the Father when that unique declaration came to him from the majestic glory, "This is my Son, my beloved, with whom I am well pleased."
We ourselves heard this voice come from heaven while we were with him on the holy mountain.
— 2 Peter 1:16-18
