Descent from Mount Tabor (James Talmage)

      Our Lord’s descent from the holy heights of the Mount of Transfiguration was more than a physical return from greater to lesser altitudes; it was a passing from sunshine into shadow, from the effulgent glory of heaven to the mists of worldly passions and human unbelief; it was the beginning of His rapid descent into the valley of humiliation.
--James E. Talmage, Jesus the Christ
