Two weeks have already passed since Easter. Can you believe it? This week we get a double dose of Peter. First we see him preach a big sermon after which, 3,000 people are baptized. Then we hear him build on what we heard about last week. Now he speaks about the ransom that was paid for us. Finally, we'll hear about the biggest surprise dinner ever. Jesus meets up with some disciples on the road to Emmaus, but they don't know who he is right away. After he breaks bread and gives thanks then it all makes sense!
This week we get to celebrate another special Sunday in the church year -- Transfiguration Sunday. We hear about Moses and the Elders sharing a special meal with God on Mt. Sinai, Peter, James and John see Jesus changed before their eyes, and Peter recounts this experience later as the foundation for what he preaches and teaches!
