|We read in the eighteenth chapter of Genesis that Abraham saw three uyouths, or angels, who had come to his dwelling. He saw three, and he worships one; the three angels signified the Trinity of persons -- i.e. as regards the man who adored one whom he understands to signify the unity of the essence. Thus Christ, in His transfiguration, reveals Himself the true God, one in essence, triple in person.||
|In the third chapter of Daniel, we read that Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, sent three youths into a fiery furnace; and when he came to the furnace that he might look at them in the fire, he saw with them a fourth, like the Son of God: the three youths signify the Trinity of persons; the fourth reveals the unity of essence of Christ in His transfiguration, and reveals Him truly one in essence, triple in person.|

|Abraham contemplates three, but only worships one.||In that sight the glory of Christ is revealed to the Gentiles.|
|Malachi 4.2||But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of righteousness arise.||Habakkuk 3.4||And his brightness shall be as the light; He shall have horns coming out of His hands, or bright beams out of his side.|
Lo, the three disciples behold the Son of God glorified!
