Transfiguration of the Lord Sunday

23 February 2020

The actual location of the Transfiguration of Jesus is unknown, but one likely candidate is Mount Hermon, on the Syria-Lebanon border. Mount Hermon is a short distance from the city of Caesarea Philippi, where Jesus and his disciples were known to be shortly before the Transfiguration. Mount Hermon is the highest mountain in the area and it is covered with a permanent white snowfield. This melting snow provides water to the area during the dry months, and it also feeds the Jordan River.
