August 6: Feast of the Metamorphosis

Adapted from Brief Exhortations:

Geneva Bible:

Romans 12:2 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed  [metamorphosizedby the renewing of your f mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

The word “transformed” is from the Greek word ” metamorphe,” (to transform or change) and is found only in the above verse, in Matthew 17:2 …

Geneva Bible:

Matthew 17:2  And was b transfigured  [metamorphosized]  before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

and in Mark 9:2 …

Geneva Bible:

Mark 9:2 1 And after six days Jesus taketh [with him] Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured  [metamorphosized]  before them.  

where it is used of the transfiguration of Jesus. It is used in biology with reference to the change of the worm to the butterfly.
