Preparing for Sunday is a resource for clergy and the laity to get ready for the upcoming Sunday using a text from the Revised Common Lectionary. This week’s text is from Luke 9:28-36.
Do you have questions or answers to the questions? Leave them in the comments.
Here are some questions to think about the text:
- After reading the passage for this week, read the following: Luke 9:23-27. In what ways do these two passages connect?
- Read Exodus 24:12-18. How are these two stories similar? How are they different? How do they ultimately connect?
- Jesus talks to Moses and Elijah about what was going to happen to him in Jerusalem. The word used to describe his death is the world “exodus.” This is the same word that describes the Israelites leaving Egypt. How is Jesus’ upcoming death like the Jews fleeing the Pharaoh?
- Luke is the only gospel that connects the story to prayer. Why is that important?
- What was the reason behind Peter’s talk about building three monuments for the occasion?
- What is the significance of the voice?
