<598> Thesis: The "glorious conversation" was focused upon the accomplishment of the ultimate "deliverance" by Jesus in "Egypt". Introduction: I have made the claim that Luke 9:28-36 is consumed by "Kingdom" realities because Jesus had said that certain of His disciples would "see" the Kingdom of God while they were yet living within the boundaries of the kingdom of darkness. Under that conviction, I have argued that each of the details of Luke's record reveal the Kingdom of God in such a way that "eyes" could see it. Thus, in our study last time we focused upon the appearance of Moses and Elijah as the initial "types" of Kingdom reality. Moses was the original, human law-giver so that God's Kingdom could be established upon the earth in a visible form and Elijah was the original, human testament to the need for a "greater than Moses" if God's Kingdom was going to be actually established in a visible form. Moses illustrated the principles of the Kingdom and Elijah illustrated the complete impotency of Israel's application of those principles in daily life. This morning we are going to consider at least some of the issues of 9:31 so that we may gain a clearer understanding of the Kingdom of God. To do that, we are going to focus upon what I will call "the glorious conversation".
