TALK: Consider some of these ideas
“Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, 3 and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no one on earth could bleach them.” (Mark 9:2-3)
Who was Jesus? The question was being tossed around quite a bit. John the Baptist? Elijah? The Messiah? The Transfiguration would reveal his divinity, even as it remains mysterious.
- When have you wondered about the identity of a leader? What resolved your questions?
- How is your identity defined? How do you juggle the many pieces? Are you spouse/parent, sibling/child, friend/co-worker? Which identity takes priority?
PRAY: Lord, you show yourself both distinct from, but connected with the prophets when you appeared with them on the mountain. Show yourself to us as God’s beloved Son. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
BLESS: May the divine and human Jesus fill you with promise!
