Children's Christmas Pageant
A Baptismal Sermon
Our gospel reading for this morning may be the single most dramatic event of Jesus’ ministry.
You just heard the story. Jesus takes Peter, James, and John up a mountain so that they can pray. While praying, Jesus’ appearance changes. Suddenly Jesus’ face and even his clothes shine with the glory of God. Heroes from the Old Testament appear with him. A cloud overshadows the little group. A voice speaks from heaven. This is big stuff.
In case we need it, this passage reminds us who Jesus really is. This story reveals Jesus as the only-begotten Son of God, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God. On the mountain, Jesus is revealed as God incarnate. . . .
Jesus’ transfiguration teaches us not only about who he is, but about who we are and who we are becoming. Moses’ transfiguration is not just a strange story from a time long ago; it is our story. It is about what happens to us and in us, through the grace of God. . . .
