Today you are scheduled to read about Jesus’ transfiguration. To explore the significance of this event, let’s remember that after humanity’s failure as the royal priests of Eden, God promises that one of their descendants will intervene on their behalf to restore the blessings of Eden. Throughout Israel’s story, God raises up leaders to be this royal priest, but they all fall short. But their stories point forward to the ultimate royal priest, Jesus. In this video, we’ll explore how Jesus is the ultimate king and priest who invites humans back into Eden so that we can once again take up our calling as God’s royal priests.
Today, we continue our journey through the book of Matthew in chapters 17-18 as we learn from this book.
