February 27, 2014, Transfiguration Sunday
Question: What is the greatest change you have ever seen in another person?
Presence of God on the Mountain--Smoke and devouring fire.
"Insider" Story--You gotta believe if you're gonna believe this story.
Glory like a fire--similar to Pentecost
God in power style of revelation
The mountain is where you keep the instructions (Kind of like that drawer where all of the instruction and warranty manuals are kept.)
Constant reinvention of self (Jesus) who will he be?
2 Peter 1:16-21
No "fairy tales" in Jesus' story (Living Bible)
Mentions seeing the transfiguration.
Likely a generation or two later than Peter, himself
Disciples overcome by fear
Same words as at Jesus' Baptism
Obey the rules or a new interpretation?
Uncertainty of sign. What will be asked of the disciples?
Next Week: Lent begins!
Readings for First Sunday in Lent
Genesis 2:15-17, 3:1-7
Have a great week!
