Matthew 17: 1-9
By Barry Woodbridge

Last week’s gospel lection from Matt. 5: 1-12 is linked to this week’s by Matthew’s continuing development of the Moses-Jesus relationship. In Matt 5:1-12, the sermon was preached on the mountain (compared with Luke’s on the plain), and today Jesus is again on a mountain, as was Moses, when the next theophany occurs, transforming his ministry yet again.
