Our typical Sunday morning schedule:
Please join us!
“And He was transfigured before them, and His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became white as light.” Moses and Elijah witnessed the fulfillment of the Old Testament in this Lord Jesus, and the Father testified concerning Him: “This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to Him!” The disciples, too, were “eyewitnesses of His majesty.” The testimony of apostles of every age are confirmed in the transfiguration. As Peter writes, “We have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place.”
By His own blood, shed on the cross, Jesus makes and seals the new covenant with us. Hence the appearance of the glory of the Lord is no longer “like a devouring fire.” To us, His glory is graciously revealed in His own body. We are like the elders, who went up the mountain with Moses, saw God, and, instead of being destroyed, “ate and drank.” We also behold the Lord our God in Christ Jesus, and we abide with Him as we eat and drink His body and blood at the altar.
