Q

I need help finding additional resources, particularly peer-reviewed journal articles, for a paper on the "transfiguration of Christ."

This is for an exegetical paper for my REL110-RS and also needs to focus on interpretation/commentary about Luke 9: 28-36.

Thanks for calling today. Here's a wrap-up of the resources we found and where we found them.

In the eBooks section, we opened the Oxford Digital Reference Collection and used Oxford Biblical Studies, where we found quite a bit of explication on the verse and on the subject of "transfiguration." I've attached a link to that search.

Then, we explored the following modules in the EBSCOhost All Reference Databases collection: Academic Search Complete, both ATLA modules, both Humanities modules, and the New and Old Testament Abstracts w Full Text modules. For the sake of simplicity, I'm just going to paste in the seven articles with permalinks that we ended up choosing to send you from that database:
