A Word from Our Pastor

Good morning!

What a day this will be! We are still in our study in the Gospel of Mark, but today will not be like any other of these sermons. This morning we get to study the TRANSFIGURATION OF JESUS!

In Mark 9, it says that Jesus was transfigured. The Greek word is the verb metamorphoo. We get our word metamorphosis from it. It means “a change on the outside which comes from within.” When a caterpillar changes into a butterfly, metamorphosis occurs. In the transfiguration, Jesus was changed from an ordinary looking man into a figure of light with brilliant beams radiating from His body.

Here’s how one scholar summarized it:
“For a brief moment the veil of Jesus’ humanity was lifted and His true essence was allowed to shine through. The glory which was always in the depths of His being rose to the surface for that one time in His earthly life. Or, put another way, He slipped back into eternity to His pre-human glory. It was a glance back and a look forward into His future glory!”

What a moment it was then, and what a discussion it will now be today! As the song writer expressed, “O What a Foretaste of Glory Divine!”

Pastor Danny
