Three Disciples Saw Jesus Transfigured

Mark 9:2-10

After Christ had led Peter, James, and John

Up a high mountain, He was transfigured.

His garments became very, very white.

They had not been bleached but they gave off light.


Elijah and Moses talked with Jesus.

Peter said three booths should be made for them.

The three Disciples were very frightened.

Then a big voice from a cloud spoke to them.


God the Father told the Disciples to

Listen to His beloved Son, Jesus.

The Disciples did not understand what

They saw and heard.  It was a mystery.


Coach Cole used to say, “Every time there is

A vote in the huddle, the linemen win.”
