14.02.28 exegesis transfiguration

  1. 1. The Transfiguration of Our Lord: God Manifests His Glory in the Body of Christ Jesus, Transfigured for Us by His Cross Exodus 24:8–18; 2 Peter 1:16–21; Matthew 17:1–9; Psalm 2:6-12
  2. 2. THE TRANSFIGURATION OF OUR LORD Exodus 24:8–18 2 Peter 1:16–21 Matthew 17:1–9 God Manifests His Glory in the Body of Christ Jesus, Transfigured for Us by His Cross The Transfiguration confirms “the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place” (2 Pet. 1:19). The divine glory of Jesus is manifested in the word of His apostles, who were “eyewitnesses of His majesty” (2 Pet. 1:16). “He was transfigured before them, and His face shone like the sun” (Matt. 17:2). Moses and Elijah witnessed the fulfillment of the Old Testament in this Lord Jesus, and the Father testified concerning Him: “This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased” (Matt. 17:5). By His own blood, shed on the cross, Jesus makes and seals the new covenant with us. Hence, “the appearance of the glory of the Lord” is no longer “like a devouring fire” (Ex. 24:17), but is graciously revealed in His own body. As “Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel” went up the mountain with Moses and “beheld God, and ate and drank” (Ex. 24:9, 11), we also behold the Lord our God in Christ Jesus, and we abide with Him as we eat and drink His body and blood at the altar.
  3. 3. The Transfiguration is a pivotal moment, and the setting on the mountain is presented as the point where human nature meets God: the meeting place for the temporal and the eternal, with Jesus himself as the connecting point, acting as the bridge between heaven and earth. The disciples saw God reflected in Jesus. What are your mountaintop moments where you get that perfect picture of heaven? “When higher beings allow us to see them, that's the very moment we begin to be one of them.” --Toba Beta (Indonesian Sci Fi author)

We make our pilgrimage with Him by way of repentance, and thus we return to our dying and rising in Holy Baptism. Christ Jesus, “who knew no sin,” became our sin, so that by His death we are released from sin and in His resurrection we “become the righteousness of God” (2 Cor. 5:21). As God has thereby reconciled the world to Himself in Christ, “now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Cor. 6:2). He has provided the sacrificial Lamb, and He has left “a blessing behind Him, a grain offering and a drink offering” (Joel 2:14, 19) in the Eucharist. He summons us to return to Him with all our heart, because He is “gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love” (Joel 2:13). We do so with faith and confidence in Him, and so we pray to Him as our Father, give to the needy from a heart of love, and fast for the sake of repentance (Matt. 6:3–4, 6, 17–18).
