The Last Sunday after Epiphany

Holy Eucharist, Rite II
Sunday School

The season after Epiphany closes with the Transfiguration.
It began with Jesus' Baptism in the Jordan River at the hands of John the Baptism.
It concludes with Jesus taking Peter, James, and John (the usual witnesses to important events in Jesus' ministry) up the Mount of Transfiguration, where Jesus meets with Moses (the Law giver) and Elijah (the foremost of the Prophets).

In both cases God is present and speaks to them.
At the Baptism, God says to Jesus, "You are my Son, in whom I am well pleased."
At the Transfiguration, God says to Peter, James, and John, "This is my Son, the Beloved.  Listen to him."
