The Radiance of God's Glory (Audio Teaching)
Scripture: Matthew 16:1-4; 13-28; 17:1-5; Hebrews 1:1-4
The Pharisees asked Jesus for a miraculous sign and He declares that none will be given it except the sign of Jonah. Yet, when he’s alone with his disciples he starts asking them what they believe about him. Upon realization of what the Father had revealed to them about being the Christ, Jesus predicts His death, rebuked Peter for countering it and then is transfigured in front of them, giving Peter, James and John the very testimony of the Law, the Prophets and God himself confirming what God had been revealed to them. Jesus didn’t care to share this with those who chronically didn’t believe in Him but willingly delighted to share it with those coming into that revelation.
