sensationalism

February 26, 2013

I loved reading Mark 9:2-13 in The Message (www.biblegateway.com). Matthew 17:1-13 and Luke 9:28-36 tell the same account, with each having different details added in.

When I looked at The Quest Study Bible the footnotes were wonderful. One reason it gives for Jesus to be transfigured was so the Father could verify Who Jesus was – His Son, the Messiah.

I love the next point given that reveals God is not into “the show”. The Pharisees had been after Jesus to give them a sign of Who He really was. Since Jesus always followed the leading of His Father, He refused. If the Pharisees had seen Jesus being transfigured, it would have increased the cry for more of the same. This Study Bible brings out the Father’s desire for a change of heart instead of the people’s love for sensationalism as a reason for Jesus telling His disciples to keep it quiet. I love that thought. Even with our ability to create unbelievably sensational sights with lights, cameras, and computer images, we can’t even begin to replicate the reality of heaven or the incredible glory of the Father. That seems quite fitting of what I know of Him: He isn’t into sensationalism, but transformed hearts.
