Introducing Derrida and deconstruction -- The critical "other" : Derridean theory within biblical studies -- The Markan transfiguration in biblical studies -- Rereading the Markan transfiguration -- New figurations : implications and future directions.
Summary: At first glance the Markan transfiguration scene (Mk. 9:2-8) is all about light, sound and spectacle. Commentators see revealed in this scene a sparkling vision of God's gloryG�C�othe light that banishes the shadow of incomprehension and by which the hidden truth of the Gospel finally becomes clear. But have commentators been blinded by their dazzling evaluations of Mark's theology? For, despite all the splendor and sparkle, the Markan transfiguration remains a difficult scene to interpret. Transfigured asks what would be seen if one were to squint past the sun-like glory that dominates this vis.
