Lesson Review – Mark 9:2-13 – The Transfiguration


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Mark 9:2-13 – The Transfiguration.

This is lesson 24 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 102 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 24 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

God, who spoke through the law (Moses) and the prophets (Elijah), has spoken fully and finally in the death and resurrection of his son, Jesus.

The Lesson In A Sentence

Jesus gave up his heavenly glory to take our sins upon the cross.

Questions For You Kids

Who did Jesus take up on the mountain?

He took three of his disciples: Peter, James, and John.

What happened on the mountain?

The disciples saw Jesus’ heavenly glory. It was so intense that even Jesus’ clothes glowed and became whiter than any white anyone had ever seen.

Who else appeared on the Mountain? Why do you think they appeared? 

Parents: Preschoolers didn’t cover why Moses and Elijah were there.
Moses – He was there representing the “law” that was given to God’s people.
Elijah – He was there representing the “prophets” of God.
God was telling the disciples that they needed to listen to Jesus, the fulfillment of the law and the prophets (Luke 24:27).

Leaving the mountain, Jesus said something that confused the disciples. What was it?

That they shouldn’t tell anyone what they saw until Jesus had risen from the dead. They still didn’t understand that Jesus would die and rise again to save us from our sins and bring us to God.

It sounds like what the disciples saw was pretty amazing. Can you imagine what it will be like when we see Jesus in all his glory someday?

Use this as a springboard to discuss the hope you have of being in heaven with Jesus. For some kids, this may open the door of discussion around how someone gets to be with Jesus in Heaven.

Praying Together

End your conversation with a prayer thanking God that Jesus left the glory of heaven to come, live, and die so that we might be with him forever.
