Central Character

And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus. Mark 9:4

So much could be said about the Transfiguration: the dazzling brightness, two Bible characters we have read about all our lives, His disciples’ reaction, and The Voice.

To be certain, all of those are important and could cover many in depth lessons and sermons. I could see myself as one of the three disciples who came with Jesus, looking in awe at the Elijah, Moses, and Jesus after Jesus was transfigured.

The important entity in this story isn’t Elijah, Moses, James, John, or Peter. That’s right, the most important person in this passage is Jesus himself. We lose sight of that when we’re in the nitty gritty of the Bible.

Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the central character in the Bible.
