It's the day after the transfiguration of Jesus, and the three disciples excitedly descend the mountain. They had seen Jesus' glory and heard the Father's voice. They are now engaged in a theological discussion about Elijah and the resurrection. But suddenly they are back in the valley, encountering a demon-possessed boy. Relatively quickly, they've gone from the heights of God's glory to the depths of Satan's hideous work among men, and from power to helplessness.
Scripture: Mark 9:14-32
