Children’s Sermon on the Transfiguration
This children’s sermon lesson communicates the importance of the Transfiguration by focusing on how it allowed the true nature of Jesus to be revealed to those who witnessed it. A disguise or face mask can temporarily hide who we are, and the ability to fully see people makes a difference! In the same way, Peter, James and John had a temporary glimpse of Christ in the shining nature of God Himself. They were transformed by witnessing His transformation. We, too, should be changed when we understand and realize who Jesus is and what He’s done for us.

Mark 9:2-9 The Transfiguration of Jesus Christ
2 And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, 3 and his clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one on earth could bleach them. 4 And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. 5 And Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here. Let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” 6 For he did not know what to say, for they were terrified. 7 And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is my beloved Son; listen to him.” 8 And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them but Jesus only. 9 And as they were coming down the mountain, he charged them to tell no one what they had seen, until the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
Notes for your Jesus Transfigured Sunday School Lesson
The Holy Bible has many miracles. When Jesus took Peter, James, and John (3 disciples) to the high mountain he showed his eternal glory to his disciples for the first time. Then Jesus told them to keep this a secret because the people where not ready to understand that he is God’s son. This amazing event is a turning point in the New Testament.
