2nd Sunday in April

Luke 9: 28-36

And some eight days after these sayings, it came about that He (Jesus) took along
Peter and John and James, and went up to the mountain to pray. And while He was
praying, the appearance of His face became different, and His clothing became white
and gleaming.

And behold, two men were talking with Him; and they were Moses and Elijah, who,
appearing in glory, were speaking of His departure which He was about to accomplish
at Jerusalem.

Now Peter and his companions had been overcome with sleep; but when they were fully
awake, they saw His glory and the two men standing with Him. And it came about,
as these were parting from Him, Peter said to Jesus, "Master, it is good for us
to be here; and let us make three tabernacles: one for You, and one for Moses, and
one for Elijah" -- not realizing what he was saying.
And while he was saying this, a cloud formed and began to overshadow them; and they
were afraid as they entered the cloud. And a voice came out of the cloud, saying,
"This is My Son, My Chosen One; listen to Him!" And when the voice had spoken, Jesus
was found alone. And they kept silent, and reported to no one in those days any
of the things which they had seen. Luke 9:28-36 (NAS)


When Moses and Elijah appeared with Jesus, Peter asked if he should build three
tabernacles (one for each). God responded saying that they should listen to whom?

In your life, who do you listen to for direction? Do you listen to men (such as
Moses, Elijah or others)...or do you listen to Jesus (God's son)? Who does God want
us to listen to?

Easy-to-Read Version:

About eight days after Jesus said these things, he took Peter, James, and John and
went up on a mountain to pray. While Jesus was praying, his face began to change.
His clothes became shining white.

Then two men were talking with Jesus. The men were Moses and Elijah. Moses and Elijah
were shining bright too. They were talking with Jesus about his death that would
happen in Jerusalem.

Peter and the others were asleep. But they woke up and saw the glory of Jesus. They
also saw the two men that were standing with Jesus. When Moses and Elijah were leaving,
Peter said, "Master, it is good that we are here. We will put three tents here--one
for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." (Peter did not know what he was saying.)

While Peter was saying these things, a cloud came all around them. Peter, James,
and John became afraid when the cloud covered them. A voice came from the cloud.
The voice said, "This is my Son. He is the One I have chosen. Obey him." When the
voice finished, only Jesus was there. Peter, James, and John said nothing. At that
time they told no person about what they had seen. Luke 9:28-36 (ERV)
