Luke 9:28-35

transfiguration

The Transfiguration

…Jesus took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray. As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning.

Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendour, talking with Jesus. They spoke about his departure, which he was about to bring to fulfilment at Jerusalem.
Peter and his companions were very sleepy, but when they became fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men standing with him.
As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (He did not know what he was saying.)
While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud.
A voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.”

  1. May you Jonie keep on walking WITH Jesus. Have a look at this reading and see how often the word WITH is used. Thank You that you have a relationship WITH Jesus and that you use the gifts He has given you. MM

  2. The first time I read the Transfiguration I was overwhelmed, it is such an inspiring passage, thank you Jonie. Hugs.

  3. I imagine that Jesus took Peter John and James into the third heaven. As Jesus was meeting with Moses and Elijah, Father came to tell the three to listen to Jesus. This is very profound and an awesome encounter that I believe changed the three men forever.

    Thanks Jonie for the message.
    God’s Word is full of life and good things for us.

    Please stand firm and stay the course, as the Lord leads you.

    Blessing you with the healing power and love of Jesus
    St.Mark

  4. one of a few occasions when Peter, James and John were asked to come with Jesus – leaving the others behind – very thought provoking
