The Transfiguration of Our Lord

Luke 9: 28 - 36

Mark 9: 2 - 8

Matthew 17: 1 - 9

II Peter 1: 16 - 18

Transfigure means to change in appearance, sometimes in even a supernatural way. As we read the lesson, we see that not only Jesus' face was changed, but also his clothing. The passage in Mark gives the most striking description.

[The disciples Peter and John and James went up the mountain with Jesus.]

2. Who appeared with Jesus on the mountaintop?

[Moses and Elijah appeared with him.]

3. What did the disciples offer to do?

[They offered to build three dwelling places, one each for Moses, Elijah, and Jesus.]

4. What did the voice say from the sky?

[The voice said, "This is my son, my chosen; listen to him."]

5. When did we hear the voice speak before?

[We heard the voice speak at Jesus' baptism.]
