Transfiguration

Disciples were on the mount with Jesus. Sleep had overcome them while He pressed on in prayer. They awoke to see Moses and Elijah standing and talking with their Master.

Peter was overwhelmed by the sight and blurted out that it would be good to build there three tabernacles. One for Moses (law) and one for Elijah (prophets) and one for the Nazarene.

Astoundingly God’s voice was then heard. This is my Beloved Son. Hear ye Him.

Peter had failed to see that all was now enveloped in the new dispensation being accomplished by Jesus. Law and all the “thou shalts and thou shalt nots”. Prophecy and all the failures of flesh and system, and the intense, perpetual need for  repentance. These things could be taught and beaten into the consciousness, or so the devout Jew had believed.

But here stood the Messiah, heavenly visitors having vanished. He offered Love and Life for the taking. A True Vine for the abiding. He was the perfection of the Law and Prophets. The attractive vessel of grace and truth. And the men around Him were still dazzled.
