Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.

Family Bible Study - Second Sunday of Lent

Gospel Passage
Luke 9:28 Now about eight days after these sayings Jesus took with him
Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. 29 And
while he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes
became dazzling white. 30 Suddenly they saw two men, Moses and Elijah,
talking to him. 31 They appeared in glory and were speaking of his
departure, which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. 32 Now Peter
and his companions were weighed down with sleep; but since they had
stayed awake, they saw his glory and the two men who stood with him. 33
Just as they were leaving him, Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to
be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for
Elijah” — not knowing what he said. 34 While he was saying this, a cloud
came and overshadowed them; and they were terrified as they entered the
cloud. 35 Then from the cloud came a voice that said, “This is my Son, my
Chosen; listen to him!” 36 When the voice had spoken, Jesus was found
alone. And they kept silent and in those days told no one any of the things
they had seen.

Questions for Discussion:

1. God the Father speaks rarely in the Gospels, but in this Bible story He
tells the three Apostles to “listen to Jesus.” How hard do you try to listen to
Jesus when He speaks each Sunday in Sacred Scripture?

2. Why do you think Jesus was transfigured? Do you think it has anything to do with His Resurrection?

3. Who are Moses and Elijah? Why do you think they came to speak to
