The transfiguration in Mark is traditionally understood as a re-working of Exodus 24 and 1Kings 19. There are a number of elements of the Markan transfiguration account, however, which resonate more strongly with the conventions of Hellenistic epiphany stories. This paper attempts to demonstrate that the author of the gospel of Mark appealed to a variety of religious traditions in order to make his narrative accessible to a diverse audience. This practice of accommodation conveyed the gospel message to a variegated audience with varying degrees of familiarity with Jewish and non-Jewish Hellenistic traditions.
