How does this image of Jesus transfigured point forward to the end times described in the book of Revelation? (Revelation 1:12-16).
Why does Peter want to make three tents? Use a Study Bible to understand the significance of Moses and Elijah.
What other places in Scripture do we hear the words “This is my beloved Son, listen to Him”? What is the significance of the repetition here? (Cf. Psalm 2:7; Isaiah 42:1; Mark 1:11)
Imagine you were present at the transfiguration. How do you think you might have responded?
“This is my beloved son. Listen to Him.” This is how Jesus’ father spoke over him. What is your experience of the words spoken over you by your earthly parents? How is your experience of earthly parents similar or different to how your Heavenly Father thinks of you?
Jesus is seen frequently getting away to be with his Father. What ways could you pursue being with your heavenly Father?
What words do you say over your children and/or other loved ones in your life?
Our relationship with our parents often has broken elements. Today’s study may have brought up wounds that still need healing. Our Celebrate Recovery ministry provides a safe place to process and heal from these kinds of hurts. You are welcome on Wednesday nights at 5:45 pm at the church.
