The Transfiguration: Was Christ Transformed?

transfiguration

August 6th is the feast of Holy Transfiguration in which the Church celebrates an event in the life of Christ narrated by all three synoptic gospels. Christ foretold His disciples His impending passion, and then after six days revealed His divinity to them in a marvelous way. The question we want to address here is: Was Christ transformed into something He was not or did He allow the eyes of the three disciples to become receptive to see Him the way He always was?
