Sermons on Kingdom of God
The Transfiguration: a glimpse of the Kingdom after the Resurrection
Matthew relates the Transfiguration of Jesus on the high mountain between the Sermon on the Mount and the Mount of Golgotha. Peter, James, and John were given a gift to see Jesus with the glory accorded him. But first Jesus must go through the suffering and humiliation of the cross before the glory. Only by comprehending the gore of the crucifixion can we really understand Jesus’ glory.
Things are not always what they seem: Christ’s death on the Cross
In the crucifixion of Christ, we have a King on a cross by his enemies in order that he brings us into His Kingdom, changing us from enemies of God to friends of God, holy, pure, and faultless. We need to hear that and to proclaim it.
