Re-cap of May 30
The Jesus story is a story filled with many twists and turns. It didn't have to be that way. Jesus could have simply made the straight line journey back to God at the moment of his transfiguration before Peter, James and John. Instead, he made perhaps his biggest U turn of all and came down the mountain. Why? Join Mark as he reflects on what Jesus' turn means for us.
