Transfiguration: Luke 9

Lectionary Study on Luke 9

I’m delighted to have a pair of blogposts over at “The Hardest Question”┬áthis week.

The two posts are for the Transfiguration which is this Sunday. If you’re a preacher, you’re already well aware that the Transfiguration texts crop up every year, right before we begin Lent. If you’re preaching this week, these posts might get your wheels turning about what direction your sermon might take!

One of the texts is Luke 9:28-36, where Jesus ascends the mountain and shines like the sun, with Moses and Elijah appearing on either side. The other text is Exodus 34:29-35, where Moses ascends the mountain to meet God, and shines like the sun.
