We See Jesus’ Glory! (Mark 9:2-10)

Terrel Kesterson, February 11, 2018
Part of the series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could have seen Jesus in His glory as God on the Mount of transfiguration!
Our text begins, “Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John, and led them up on a high mountain apart by themselves; and He was transfigured before them.” No sinful human being can see God in all of His glory and live. When Jesus let Peter, James, and John see His glory as God, it was only some of His glory. But seeing even some of Jesus’ glory was an awe-inspiring site: “His clothes became shining, exceedingly white, like snow, such as no launderer on earth can whiten them.” Matthew says, “His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light” (Mt. 17:2). Since seeing some of Jesus’ glory on earth was that wonderful, how much more wonderful will it be to see Jesus in all of His glory in heaven!

Mark 9:2-10

2And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and bringeth them up into a high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them; 3and his garments became glistering, exceeding white, so as no fuller on earth can whiten them. 4And there appeared unto them Elijah with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. 5And Peter answereth and saith to Jesus, Rabbi, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah. 6For he knew not what to answer; for they became sore afraid. 7And there came a cloud overshadowing them: and there came a voice out of the cloud, This is my beloved Son: hear ye him. 8And suddenly looking round about, they saw no one any more, save Jesus only with themselves. 9And as they were coming down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, save when the Son of man should have risen again from the dead. 10And they kept the saying, questioning among themselves what the rising again from the dead should mean.
