Yesterday, our Pastor preached on the Transfiguration -- the sermon was titled "Listen to Him" (from Mark 9:7). He asked us to imagine that we were there along with Peter, James, and John when God instructed them to 'Listen to Him'. Then he went on to describe how we would be if we did listen to Jesus. First, he quoted some OT scriptures: Hosea 6:6 "For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings." and the oft-quoted verse from Micah "And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God." Then, not surprisingly, he transitioned to the New Testament (Mt 22:34-39) and focused on Jesus' answer to the question about The Greatest Commandment: "Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’"

"Listen to Him"... and follow!

Godspeed,

OT - taking a step back for a moment.. Mentioned before that recount of Creation was only on a few pages in Genesis and (to me) was more about “order” than scientific detail.

What is often ignored is the scientific details in the OT - that took the world over 3,000 years to recognize. Perhaps more scientists and doctors should have looked to the Bible for wisdom rather than their own minds.

Lev 17:11a. For the life of a creature is in the blood...

The practice of blood letting was popular in medicine until the mid 20th century (1940) How many lives would have been saved if the truth in the Bible had been recognized and utilized.

NT - IMO when John said “they” had witnessed the glory of Jesus - (John 1:14) that John was speaking of the Transfiguration.
