Behold the Glorious Son (Luke 9:27-45)

Throughout Luke, we’ve seen glimpses of Jesus’ divinity in his supernatural authority over sickness, demons, nature, and even death; he’s was not just a prophet or a good teacher but Immanuel, God with us. But in the event of his transfiguration, his humanity was peeled back enough for his divine glory to physically shine. As in the Sinai narrative, God’s glory once again descended upon a mountain. Yet here, Jesus Christ himself is the glory of God and the topic of discussion between himself and Moses and Elijah is his own ‘departure’ (Luke 9:31). In this sermon, Pastor Matt shows how it is by beholding the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, that we ourselves are transformed.
