Last month we explored Matt 16 where Jesus rebuked Peter for his selfishness and unwillingness to hear about the plan to go to the cross to die. Now, with the disciples reeling at this news of Jesus' self-proclaimed death, Jesus gives a few of the disciples the experience of a lifetime to lift their spirits and take courage. Jesus explodes into a bright light and is joined by Moses and Elijah. God also shows up in a cloud of power and speaks to the disciples. Join us for this adventure as we talk about what it means to "Listen" to God's son.
The Visual: I took a high powered light and held it very close to each person's face so they could get a sense of the brightness and the heat that the disciples might have encountered. Also, when speaking on behalf of Peter, I tried to build a house out of cardboard boxes for Moses, Elijah and Jesus to stay in.
