MATTHEW 17 – CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD AND MEDIATOR OF THE NEW COVENANT

“There He was transfigured before them. His Face shone like the sun, and His Clothes became as white as the light.” Matthew 17,2

Matthew 17 describes the story of The Transfiguration Of The Lord Jesus. In front of three witnesses, three of His disciples, He appears for the first time in His Divine Aspect, Shining as Light, attesting that He Is of Divine Nature.
This was confirmed by God Himself when He said :

This Is My Son, Whom I Love; with Him I Am well Pleased. Listen to Him!” Matthew 17,5

Before This Word Of God, The Lord Jesus was speaking with Moses and Elijah. Moses represents The Law and Elijah the prophets. In ancient times, God spoke through Moses and the prophets. But now, He asks us to listen to The Lord Jesus, confirming that under The New Covenant, it is no longer the Law that governs, nor the prophets, but it is His beloved Son with  Whom He Is Well Pleased. So let’s listen to Him!
