March 14, 2021 / Luke 9:28-36

His Transfiguration

Luke 9:28-36

Main Thing to Know:

The more we look to Jesus the more we look like Jesus

1. Jesus revealed God’s glory

Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. (Matthew 17:1-2)

“transfigured” = “transformed”

God’s glory seen in:

His physical transformation

God, who . . . spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son . . . who [is] the brightness of His glory . . . (Hebrews 1:1-3)

His unwavering obedience

Though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. (Hebrews 5:8)

His unique nature

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God . . . And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father (John 1:1, 14)

 His substitute death

Why were Moses & Elijah there?

Moses: the Law

Elijah: the Prophets

What did they talk about?

“decease” (v. 31) = departure (Grk: “exodos”)

2. We reflect God’s glory

And the glory which You gave Me I have given them . . .  (John 17:22)

    • Look to Jesus
    • Listen to Jesus
    • Live for Jesus

We all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory . . . (2 Corinthians 3:18)

The more we look to Jesus the more we look like Jesus
