Read Matthew 17:1-13 (also recorded in Mark 9 and Luke 9)
Again, try to put yourself in Peter’s shoes as he experiences this story.
- Describe Peter and his responses. I personally love that Mark’s account of this story tells us that Peter just didn’t know what to say – but that doesn’t mean he kept quiet :-).
- What new elements of Jesus are disclosed to Peter during this encounter?
- Is there anything that you learn from this passage that surprises or amazed you about Jesus?
- Has there been a time in your life when you were stopped speechless by something that God did in or around you? Write out this story with as much detail as you remember…
Spend some time praying and asking God to make Himself known to you.
