It probably started out just like a normal day. They were probably doing normal things. But then Jesus interrupted and said “Come on with me.” So Peter, James and John followed the Messiah up the mountain.
And then out of the blue, His face suddenly shone like the sun! His clothes became dazzling white like a flash of lightening! Then Elijah and Moses! And just when they probably thought there was nothing more they could possibly see and believe– a cloud and the Voice of God Himself. “This is my Son, whom I love.” They were so frightened they threw themselves physically to the ground. They were awestruck with the supernatural Power of God.
Jesus knew all along it was going to happen. He took them with him on purpose to see it. And he wanted them to talk about it their whole life long.
He wants us to see it. He wants us to talk about it our whole life long.
We did not follow cleverly invented stories when we told you about the power and coming of our Master Jesus the Messiah, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain. 2 Peter 1:16-18
