Accounts of the Transfiguration are found in the [[Bible]]: [[Gospel of Matthew|Matthew]] 17:1-8, [[Gospel of Mark|Mark]] 9:2-9, [[Gospel of Luke|Luke]] 9:28-36, and [[II Peter]] 1:16-19.
==Celebration of the feast ==
A Like all feasts of the Master, the Transfiguration is a vigil-ranked feast, though in parish practice a full [[All-Night Vigil]] is usually not celebrated. Typically, [[Great Vespers]] is conducted on the eve of the feast, and on the morning of the feast, the [[Divine Liturgy]] of Saint [[John Chrysostom]] celebrated, traditionally preceded by the [[Matins]] service.
The Vespers service includes the readings: [[Exodus]] 24:12-18, 33:11-23, 34:4-6, 8; [[I Kings]] 19:3-9, 11-13, 15-16. The Matins service includes the reading: [[Luke]] 9:28-36. And the Divine Liturgy: [[II Peter]] 1:10-19; [[Gospel of Matthew|Matthew]] 17:1-9.
