Read Mark 9:2-13
The transfiguration is the final scene of the three-part drama of who Jesus is. Mark has us understand that he is the Messiah, and that he will have to suffer, but then the mind-blowing third part comes. We see Jesus transformed and a voice calling us to listen to him.
This sermon came in a service in which we dedicated two of our children. How does reading this text help us think about how we help children to understand what following Jesus is really all about?
