Many commentators have noticed a similarity between Jesus’ return from the Mount of Transfiguration and Moses’ return from Mount Sinai with the 10 Commandments. In both cases there is a chaotic scene of failure which Jesus and Moses resolve. In this study, which was originally published in the magazine, Bible Study . . and how! I attempt to explore this connection further – mainly by means of an intertextual analysis of the relevant passages in Mark Ch. 9 and Exodus Ch. 32. This is really a preliminary attempt – I’m hoping at some stage to explore this interesting topic more fully, and will welcome any advice and (hopefully reasonably constructive!) criticism!
