Transfiguration means “transformed”. Jesus was transformed into a glorious image in which his face shone like the sun and his clothes became as white as the light. This image was nothing like Peter, James and John had ever seen before. It showed them that Jesus truly was from God. This was an actual demonstration of the fact that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of the Living God (Matthew 16:13-20). Moses and Elijah would have been two of the greatest Jews that had ever lived. For Jesus to stand with them showed his importance. Then, the voice of the Lord came from a bright cloud and God put the words of Jesus above those of Moses and Elijah (verse 5). Moses and Elijah lived under the Old Law. Jesus had new words to say. The Lord told the disciples to “Listen to Him.”
We are making time to see Jesus in Church at 8.30 am on Thursday, just like Peter, James and John we can see Jesus transfigured I hope you can make the time to come and join us so we can be close to God.
