the transfiguration
THE TRANSFIGURATION
  • "For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming (parousia, DKP) of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory" ‘This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.’ And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain. We also have the prophetic word made more sure, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.”
refuting the scoffers
REFUTING THE SCOFFERS
  • BOOBYER:“2 Peter as a whole is concerned to buttress hope of the second advent; and in 1:16-18 itself the writer desires above all to show that the Lord’s dunamis and parousia were not ‘cunningly devised fables.’ They were not, because he and others had actually been ‘eyewitnesses of that glory.’ If this was to be of any value as a proof of the coming dunamis and parousia it must have been something of the parousia greatness that the eyewitnesses on the ‘holy mount’ saw.”
  • The Transfiguration Defines The Parousia Anticipated By Peter And Denied By The Scoffers.
transfiguration meaning
TRANSFIGURATION MEANING
  • The significance of the Transfiguration for the study of eschatology today cannot be overstated. Scoffers were denying the 2nd coming of the Lord (2 Peter 3:3).
  • To refute them Peter appealed to the Transfiguration as visionary confirmation of the parousia.
  • By appealing to the Transfiguration the apostle gives the definitive definition of the parousia.
  • Because the Transfiguration was a vision of the parousia, if we wish to know the Biblical definition of the Lord’s coming we must go to the Mount.
what they saw
WHAT THEY SAW
  • Ramsey: “By appearing together Moses and Elijah sum up the entire drama of the old order from its beginning to its end; the one is the predecessor, the other is the precursor of the Messiah.”
  • Moses and Elijah appeared in glory with Jesus, (Luke 9:30-31); but the glory of Jesus out shined those grand spokesman of the Old Covenant.
  • The Father removed Moses and Elijah, Jesus alone remained: "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased: Hear Him!"
application
APPLICATION
  • Peter said the Transfiguration established the prophecies of the parousia more sure. On the Mount they saw a vision of the parousia.
  • But the Transfiguration was a vision of the transformation from the Old Covenant Glory of Moses and the Prophets to the New Covenant Glory of Jesus the Messiah.
  • Therefore the Biblical definition of the Parousia is Covenantal Transformation and not cosmic annihilation!
from glory to glory
From Glory To Glory!
  • The Transfiguration, as a vision of the parousia, was a vision of the “metamorphosis” the transformation from the glory of Moses to the Glory of Christ.
  • “Body” of flesh– “Body” of Glory
  • 2 Corinthians 3– Paul was the minister of the New Covenant– which has greater glory than that of Moses.
  • Through Paul’s ministry, they were being “transformed” metamorphosis– “from glory to glory” (2 Cor. 3:16)
the transfiguration and covenant change
The Transfiguration and Covenant Change
  • Transfiguration
  • Glory of Moses
  • Christ Transfigured (metamorphsosis)
  • Glory of Moses fades
  • Glory of Christ anticipated and established
  • 2 Corinthians 3
  • The Glory of the First Covenant
  • “We are being transformed” (metamorphosis) “From glory to Glory!”
  • When one turns to Christ, the veil is taken away
  • Paul’s (Spirit led) ministry (4:1)
the transfiguration matthew 16 27 28
The Transfiguration - Matthew 16:27-28
  • Mat. 16:27-28 has caused great perplexity- Connection to the Transfiguration
  • Proposed Solutions:
  • Amillennialism- V. 27– end of time; v. 28 - Pentecost.
  • Premillennialism- The Transfiguration fulfills the prediction.
elements of matthew 16 27 28
Elements of Matthew 16:27-28
  • Matthew 16:21f provides the following contextual, constituent elements:
  • Suffering of Christ and his disciples (21f)
  • Promise of vindication– Coming of the Son of Man in Judgment / reward (v. 27)
  • Coming of the Kingdom (v. 28)
  • New Covenant- Parousia / Marriage / New Covenant are inextricably linked;
  • Isaiah 62:2-12– Mt. 16:27 is Isaiah 62!
  • Hosea 2:15-23- New Covenant- Remarriage!
  • First Century Fulfillment (v. 28).
matthew 16 fulfilled when
MATTHEW 16: FULFILLED WHEN?
  • Transfiguration is not the fulfillment of Mt. 16:27f, it is a visionary confirmationof fulfillment! (Mt. 17:11)
  • It is confirmation of the prophetic word!
  • If transfiguration was a vision of Mt. 16:27f, then we must find some event that fulfills requirements: vindicative parousia, kingdom, passing of Torah, New Covenant and Marriage, first century fulfillment
  • Fulfillment demands an event to satisfy all of these elements
christ s vindication coming
Christ’s Vindication Coming
  • Element #1– Vindication of Christ’s suffering and his disciples– (Judgment!)
  • Matthew 21:40–
  • Matthew 23—
  • 1 Thessalonians 2:14-16
  • 2 Thessalonians 1:4f
  • Revelation 6 / 18-19!
  • AD 70 was indubitably Christ’s coming in judgment of his murderers, and the persecutors of his apostles and prophets!
element 2 christ s kingdom coming
Element #2– Christ’s Kingdom Coming
  • Matthew 25:31f– When the Son of man comes in his glory, then shall he sit on the throne of his glory
  • Luke 19:12f– Receive kingdom and return (judgment at return)
  • Luke 21:28-32
  • 2 Timothy 4:1– Judgment and kingdom!
  • Revelation 11:15f– Kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our God and of His Christ!
element 3 parousia and passing of torah
Element #3–Parousia and Passing of Torah
  • Matthew 24:1-3- Christ’s coming, end of the age, destruction of the temple all linked.
  • 2 Corinthians 3– Being removed
  • Hebrews 8:13- Nigh to passing!
  • Hebrews 9:6-10– No access while Torah remained valid– no access until destruction of Jerusalem– at the parousia!
element 4 parousia marriage new covenant
Element #4- Parousia- Marriage- New Covenant
  • God’s remarriage– The New Covenant
  • Mat. 16:27 is a citation of Isaiah 62– the promise of the remarriage of Israel!
  • The time of the remarriage is the time of the New Covenant (Hosea 2:18-23)– I will make a covenant- you shall, call me husband, I will betroth you to me… (In the last days (3:5)
parousia marriage new covenant
Parousia- Marriage- New Covenant
  • Transfiguration = Matthew 16:27
  • Matthew 16:27 = Isaiah 62- The time of the remarriage of Israel/ time of the New Covenant– Hosea 2:18-23.
  • The time of the remarriage (Thus, the finalizing of the New Covenant)– at the destruction of the city that killed the prophets (vindicative judgment of Christ!)
  • Matthew 22: “All Things Are Ready!
element 5 some standing here
Element #5- Some standing Here!
  • Vindication of the Saints– AD 70--- Matthew 23– This Generation
  • Judgment of Jerusalem for slaying the saints– Matthew 24:2-3; 29-34; 1 Thes. 2:15-16– This Generation
  • Christ coming in the Kingdom– Luke 21:20-32– This Generation
  • The Remarriage– New Covenant– “The master sent out his armies and killed those wicked men and burnt their city” (Matthew 22:7– Revelation 18-19).
  • Every constituent element of Matthew 16:21-28 was said to occur in Jesus’ first century generation– in the judgment of Old Covenant Jerusalem.
summary to this point
Summary to This Point
  • The Transfiguration was a vision of the fulfillment of Matthew 16:21-28.
  • Only one event fits all of the criteria!
  • Christ came in judgment / vindication of the martyrs in AD 70
  • Christ came in the kingdom in AD 70
  • Christ came at the end of the age of Torah in AD 70
  • Christ came for his wedding in AD 70!
  • The Transfiguration- as a vision of the end of the age of Torah– fits perfectly!
nothing else fits
Nothing Else Fits!!
  • Fact: The Transfiguration was a vision of the Second Coming of Christ.
  • Fact: It was a vision of the end of Moses and the Law!
  • It was not:
  • A Vision of the Cross—No judgment
  • A Vision of Pentecost– No judgment
  • A Vision of the beginning of the millennium
fulfillment and torah
Fulfillment and Torah
  • Fact: The Transfiguration was a vision of the Second Coming of Christ– Mt. 16:27.
  • Fact: It was a vision of the end of Moses and the Law!
  • Transfiguration- End of Torah- Parousia!
  • Wherever you posit fulfillment of Matthew 16:27, since the Transfiguration was a vision of the end of Torah…
  • Torah would– will– remain valid until the parousia!
  • Thus, if Matthew 16:27 is unfulfilled- Torah remains valid– the New Covenant is not completely established!
scoffers torah and parousia
Scoffers, Torah and Parousia
  • Transfiguration Was A Vision Of The Passing Of Torah  Vision of the Parousia
  • It was a vision of what the scoffers denied!
  • If Torah Passed At The Cross, Why Didn’t Peter Tell Them that Torah Passed At The Cross, and the parousia occurred already?
  • Fulfillment of Transfiguration– passing of Torah-- Was Still Future When Peter Wrote!
what the scoffers were denying
WHAT THE SCOFFERS WERE DENYING
  • The Scoffers Were Denying The Parousia (2 Peter 3:3f),
  • The Transfiguration Was A Vision Of What The Scoffers Were Denying
  • If The Transfiguration Was A Vision Of What They Were Denying, And If The Transfiguration Was A Vision Of The Passing Of “Moses And The Prophets” Then The Scoffers Were Denying The Passing Of “Moses And The Prophets!”
transfiguration and parousia
TRANSFIGURATION AND PAROUSIA
  • Transfiguration Was A Vision Of The Day Of The Lord Of 2 Peter 3.
  • Scoffers Denying What Peter Saw
  • The Transfiguration Was A Vision Of The End Of Moses And The Law
  • Therefore, Peter’s Day Of The Lord Of 2 Peter 3, Was The End Of Moses And The Law.
  • Scoffers Were Not Denying The Passing Of Physical Heaven And Earth.
transfiguration and the millennium
Transfiguration and the Millennium
  • Transfiguration was a vision of the fulfillment of the second coming of 2 Peter 3—what was being denied by the scoffers.
  • 2 Peter 3 was a prediction of the coming of New Heavens and Earth.
  • The New Heavens and Earth come at the end of the Millennium.
  • But, the Transfiguration (a vision of the fulfillment of the second coming of 2 Peter 3) was a vision of the end of the Old Covenant (Moses and the Prophets).
  • The New Heavens and Earth come at the end of the Millennium (Revelation 20-21).
  • Therefore, the end of the Old Covenant (Moses and the Prophets) comes at the end of the millennium
a d 70 and transfiguration
A.D. 70 AND TRANSFIGURATION
  • It was the vindicative judgment coming of Christ (Mt. 23-24)
  • It was the coming of the kingdom (cf. Rv. 11:15f)
  • It was within the time frame (Mt. 16:28).
  • It was the passing of the law and the prophets (Luke 21:22/Mt. 5:17-18)
  • It was the time of Christ’s wedding
  • The transfiguration definitively defines the parousia of Christ as his coming to destroy the Old Covenant world in AD 70
summary and conclusion
SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION
  • Purpose of 2 Peter: To defend parousia against scoffers.
  • Transfiguration final defense and definition of parousia
  • Transfiguration vision in no way resembles traditional definition of parousia.
  • Transfiguration a vision of the passing of “law and prophets”
  • Only one event fits—A.D. 70!!
