Pep Rallies and Victory Parades
The Transfiguration and Palm Sunday
Have you ever had a celebrity encounter?
What happened here? Why did Jesus want Peter, James, and John to experience this? What message did God have for these three? How might this experience have been beneficial to Jesus? Why is it significant that Moses and Elijah are there? How does Peter recognize them? Why does Jesus ask them to not tell anybody about this?
What were the people doing with the branches? How many people were probably there? What do they think they were celebrating? How did things change for Jesus by the end of the week? What is the victory that Jesus accomplished? What does this mean for us?
