THE TRANSFIGURATION25

     At this stage, there occurs something which has puzzled all who have ever attempted to explain it by the current theological methods of interpretation. We are told by these enraptured narrators that their eyes became heavy with sleep. Nothing has so perplexed me as this statement. The usual explanations have never satisfactorily accounted for this condition in which the three found themselves. Do men usually fall asleep amid scenes such as this of the transfiguration must have been ? How was it possible for the disciples to do so ? What can its real interpretation be? Mary Baker Eddy    (CS Journal, Vol. 10, No. 1, April, 1892)
