Sermon on Luke 9:28-36 preached at Grace Ev. Lutheran Church by Pastor Daniel Bondow.
Then and now, the road to the cross is difﬁcult and treacherous. Jesus prepared three of his followers for the journey to Calvary by enabling them to see some of the brilliance of his divine
majesty and to hear the witness of two Old Testament prophets. The disciples didn’t grasp what they saw and heard, but we understand the signiﬁcance of the transﬁguration and are
strengthened as we begin our walk through the rigors of Lent. What happened that day on the mountaintop counsels us on the way of the cross.
