‘…“This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!”’
Matthew 17:5

On the Mount of Transfiguration, Moses, the law giver, and Elijah, who represents the prophets, stood side by side with Jesus. But Jesus outshone them all. The Bible says, ‘…His clothes shimmered, glistening white, whiter than any bleach could make them…’ Mark 9:3 TM). In that moment Jesus was God in His purest form. Awed by Him, Peter said, ‘…“Lord…if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah”’ (Matthew 17:4 NKJV). It was a sincere sentiment, but it was sincerely wrong. ‘While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!’’’ The word beloved implies ‘unique.’ There is no one else like Jesus! Not Moses. Not Elijah. Not Peter. Not Zoroaster, Buddha, or Muhammad. No one in heaven or on earth. Three shrines would have made Moses and Elijah equal with Christ, and God would have none of it. Only one shrine should be built, because only one person on the mountain deserved to be worshiped. ‘When the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces and were greatly afraid’ (Matthew 17:6 NKJV). The One who hung the stars in space and left Pharaoh dead at the bottom of the Red Sea stood among them. The sight of Him took their breath away, removed every trace of arrogance and caused them to end up face-down on the ground. How long has it been since you felt such reverence for God?

2 Chronicles 32-34, Luke 18:1-17, Psalm 119:145-160 , Proverbs 22:



  1. It was not “The One who hung the stars in space and left Pharaoh dead at the bottom of the Red Sea stood among them. ” Those action were done by God, Jesus his Father, not by the son of God, who could not do anything without the Power of God.

      1. where does it say Jesus is God. The apostle John talks about the Word(“logos”) of God. Christ was not literally the Word. He was the word “made flesh”. This can be supported by evaluating all references to “logos” in the New Testament and the Septuagint. It is also noteworthy that although the writer to the Hebrews speaks in exalted terms of Christ (e.g. “express image of his {God’s } person”-Hebrews 1:3), “logos” is used of God’s message, and not of Christ himself. See (Hebrews 2:2; 4:2,12; 7:28; 12:19) and (Hebrews 13:7, 22).

  2. I understand that Jesus is God in Nature if we can look at John 1-3 , the bible says he was at the beginning, was with god in the word and the word is God, through him all things were made, without him nothing was made that has been made: this includes you and me, as well as the star could not be there without Jesus. And in the same book of John 1vs 14 says the word( Jesus) become fresh and made his dwelling among us.
