Jesus takes Peter, James, and John to the top of a mountain where they witness him be transfigured before there eyes. He stands with Moses and Elijah and the voice of God says, “This is my son, with whom I am well pleased. Listen to him.” Why did Matthew include this story at this point in his narrative?
This video is an excerpt from our weekly Bible Study on A Cartoonist’s Bible Network. Every Monday at 4:00pm Central Time members of the network gather on Zoom to discuss the text for that week from both the Revised Common Lectionary and the Narrative Lectionary. I walk through the visuals on A Cartoonist’s Guide to the Bible and we discuss ideas for how to teach and preach the text.
Join me every Monday at 4:00pm Central Time for a live Bible study on Zoom.
These sessions include:
- a presentation of the visual resources for the lectionary texts for the week,
- live discussion around the texts,
- previews and behind-the-scenes peeks at what is happening at A Cartoonist’s Guide to the Bible
The video of the session remains available on the network to view at any time, in case you can’t make it for the live session.
This is a part of the Cartoonist’s Bible Network. I’d love to have you join us.
