The Transfiguration of Jesus: Mark 9:2-10 Second Sunday in Lent February 25, 2024

Updated: Feb 26





Mark 9:2-10

The Transfiguration


For younger children


In the Gospel for the second Sunday of Lent, Jesus is revealed in His full glory as God at the Transfiguration. (Jesus gave his disciples a special vision of what he will be like after he is resurrected and ascended into heaven with God the Father!!) They will remember this event after they experience his suffering (passion) death, resurrection, and ascension back to heaven.


We know from the Apostle's Creed that he will come again to judge the living and the dead. This may be what he will look like.


During Lent, we reflect in a special way on Jesus as 100% human and 100% divine.


LISTEN VERY CAREFULLY TO HEAR THE PRIEST SAY THIS PRAYER AT THE BEGINNING OF MASS just before the reading of God's WORD. (This is called the COLLECT)


O God, who have commanded us

to listen to your beloved Son,

be pleased, we pray,

to nourish us inwardly by your word,

that, with spiritual sight made pure,

we may rejoice to behold your glory.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit

God, for ever and ever.

AMEN


A Reading from the Gospel of Mark 9:2–10: The Transfiguration of Jesus

Jesus took Peter, James, and John and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no fuller on earth could bleach them. Then Elijah

appeared to them along with Moses, and they were conversing with Jesus. Then Peter said to Jesus in reply, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here! Let us make three tents: one for you, one for Moses, and one

for Elijah.” He hardly knew what to say, they were so terrified. Then a cloud came, casting

a shadow over them; from the cloud came a voice, “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.” Suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone but Jesus alone with them. As they were coming down from the mountain, he charged them not to relate what they had seen to anyone, except when the Son of Man had risen from the dead. So they kept the matter to themselves, questioning what rising from the dead meant.


  1. Whom did Jesus take with Him and where did they go? Peter, James, and John. They went up a high mountain.Jesus was transfigured in front of His disciples.

  2. How does the Gospel describe this? His clothes became dazzling white, brighter than any cleaner or bleach could make them.

  3. Who else appeared with Jesus? What were they doing? Moses and Elijah. They were talking with Jesus about his suffering and death to save us.

  4. What did the disciples want to do for them? Make three tents, one for each them (maybe to help this moment last.)

  5. Whose voice spoke from a cloud? What did the voice say? God the Father. He said, “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.

  6. What did Jesus ask his disciples to do as they came down the mountain? Not to tell anyone what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead.


God and Man

Directions: Draw your own picture of Jesus that shows that He is both fully God and fully human. Draw a picture of yourself as God created you to be: fully human, united with the divine nature of God shining through you.
