1. Before we set out for the Lenten journey though, we meet with God on this mountain, at this moment, and in this holy gathering where our vision is transformed, looking forward to Jesus and knowing He will lead us all the way from death, to life, to a new life now, and a life in the Promised Land of Heaven forever.    
  2. The Transfiguration means no one must wait in uncertainty and darkness for the morning star to (re)appear.
  3. Jesus came not to overwhelm us with His majesty but to touch us with God’s love.
  4. Hidden beneath the sinner is a glorious saint. Jesus has declared it to be so in your baptism.
  5. God is mercy. He was mercy then. He’s mercy now. God showed them His glory, if only a reflection, in the face of Moses.
  6. The LORD God shows His favor and presence with Joshua in the parting of the Jordan and other signs which suggest Joshua is the new Moses… but he is not!
  7. You have been given a glimpse of glory, the glory of forgiveness, that you can share with those around you in the world.
  8. Moses should receive honor, Jesus even more. Moses should be followed, Jesus even more. Moses should be trusted, Jesus most of all and above all else.
  9. If we think God’s power, love and beauty are reserved merely for the glories of Transfiguration, then we have not understood the Father; we have not understood divine revelation.
  10. It's kind of like Peter's main job at this point is to be an example of what not to do. Praise God that Jesus is and does more than we can imagine. Special guest appearance by Producer Lou.
