Strength for the Challenges Ahead

Audio Sermon
Luke 9:28-36 Transfiguration Sunday

Luke begins his account of Jesus’ transfiguration with these words, “Now about eight days after these sayings he took with him Peter and John and James and went up on the mountain to pray.”  Why did he feel the need for prayer? What might the appearance of Moses and Elijah have to do with his prayer?  In this sermon, Pastor Hinkle explores the challenges that Jesus was facing and draws comfort from them for those who feel overwhelmed or alone in their suffering.
