- L. Gregory Jones - "Reflected Glory" (February 25, 2001)
Sermon start time: 02:04. Sermon end time: 22:12.
In the Transfiguration we receive not the Jesus we want but the Jesus we need. This Jesus, in his journey to Jerusalem and crucifixion, absorbs all the hatred and sin of the world and instead of recycling it, offers us forgiveness. This is the true glory of Christ, and it is only by following him (not simply admiring him from afar) that this glory begins to reflect in our lives as well. (Abstract created by Duke Divinity School staff.)
Key quotation: “We behold the glory of Christ in the Transfiguration. And as we behold that glory, not from afar, but in the midst of seeking to follow Jesus, that glory reflects onto us. And as we seek to live faithful to this gracious and wondrous God, we are changed, from one degree of glory into another.”
