March 4, 2012 – Morning Worship

Monday 2 Peter 1:1-2:3
What is Peter’s point in bringing up his experience of the transfiguration of Christ in this context? Why does he compare it to the prophetic Word?
Tuesday 1 Corinthians 1:17-31; 2 Peter 1:16; 2:1-3:2
Who are following cleverly devised myths in Peter’s mind (hint 2:15)?  What difference ought that make in our lives?

Wednesday Exodus 19, 24; Matthew 17:1-13
Why is Moses atop the mountain talking to Jesus during his transfiguration? How does this fulfill Israel’s experience at Sinai?  What does this tell us about Jesus?

Thursday 1 Kings 19:1-18; Mark 9:2-13
What is the significance of Jesus talking to Elijah during the transfiguration?  What does this say about who Jesus is?

Friday Psalm 119:89-169; 1 Peter 1:10-12; James 1:19-27; John 1:1-18
Why is the prophetic word “more sure” than Peter’s eyewitness account of the transfiguration?  How might that encourage us today?  What might that mean for how we live our lives as Christians?

Saturday Luke 9:23-43; 2 Peter 1:16-21
What does Luke’s account tell us about the relationship of glory and majesty to suffering and hardship?  How does this relate to Peter’s messages in 1 and 2 Peter?  How does this help us understand and apply 2 Pet. 1:16-21?
