Mark 9:2-9     “Listen to Him!”   (Jeff Moore, preaching)

This is Transfiguration Sunday, so named because it is when we read gospel accounts of Jesus being transfigured on the mountain.  In addition to what they saw, Mark tells us that Peter, James, and John also heard a voice from the cloud saying, “This is my Son, the beloved.  Listen to Him!”  God is making it clear that what Jesus says has great value.  So, in Mark, what is Jesus saying?  Let’s take a look at a few of Jesus’ sayings in Mark, and try to understand what Jesus is calling us to be and do.  We’ll look briefly at them in seven categories: “Finally!”; “Follow”; “Forgive”; “Family”; “Fear”; “Faith”; “Future.”
