Luke 9v28-36 - Jesus as he really isDownload:
Do we see Jesus as he really is? Jesus's disciples had seen him being rejected – and not going to Jerusalem as a political and earthly king. Many people did not say that Jesus was the Messiah. But his apostles did believe (9:18-20). Jesus told them that he would go to Jerusalem to die, before he rose again in glory and his kingdom would come. Now, for a short time, Jesus showed his disciples just a small sight of who he really is. He revealed himself to them. Have you, by faith and by the Spirit, seen Jesus as he really is?

28And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray. 29And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering. 30And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias: 31Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem. 32But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him. 33And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said. 34While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud. 35And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. 36And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen. (KJV)
