Lesson Overview

In the Gospel for the second Sunday of Lent, Jesus is revealed in His full glory as God at the Transfiguration.
During Lent, we reflect in a special way on the full humanity and full divinity of Christ and how our God fully knows our human condition. In this lesson, students will analyze sacred art to help them contemplate the mystery of the Incarnation.

Lesson Materials

Gospel Reflection

  • Have students read the Gospel passage, or read it aloud to your students, and then answer the focus questions. You may have students answer them on their own or you may discuss them together as a class.
  • Review and discuss the correct answers when finished.


Arrange students into small groups and have them read the essay on Handout B: Jesus鈥 Divinity and Humanity, and then reflect on the paintings together using the discussion questions. You may alternately choose to read the essay and reflect on the paintings together as a class. Then, have them create their own drawing of Jesus that shows that He is both God and man using Handout C: God and Man.
