“That They May Be Purified in Me”

Brant Gardner

Jesus, in his prayer to his Father, calls this transformation a “purification.” His blessing initiated the transformation until they radiated a white light. Baptism had also “purified” them from sin through the atonement. This second purification is so intense and complete that they are enveloped in heavenly light.
