Susan Scott spoke from Matthew 17:1-9, which shares the experience of Jesus and three of his disciples going up into a mountain where they meet Moses and Elijah. In that interchange Jesus’s divine nature is revealed, with God appearing in a cloud, claiming Jesus as God’s beloved Son, telling the disciples to listen to him. It’s known as the transfiguration of Jesus.
The text calls all of us as disciples to shut up and listen to Jesus, to embrace the counter-cultural other- focused life.
