Transfiguration (pt. 3)
In today's lesson, we continue our series on the Transfiguration by exploring the connection between the First Adam and Jesus, as the Last Adam.
This connection takes us back to Eden and the loss of glory that Adam and Eve experienced after their sin.
According to Rabbinic writings, when the Messiah comes, he will restore the glory that Adam lost.
Moreover, Paul will use this line of Rabbinic theology to encourage us to increase our own reflected glory now that the Messiah - Jesus - has come.
Today's lesson not only helps us understand the Transfiguration event but also provides a goal for our personal spiritual growth. As we mature as Christians, we increasingly reflect God's glory into the darkness of the world.
