Jesus: tempted in every way (4:1-)

We look at the first two temptations that Jesus endured in the wilderness. He was tempted through physical need; he was tempted to seek good ends through evil means. He was truly tempted as we are.


Christ in the wilderness (4:1)

After Jesus was baptised he was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. Why must he go through this time of trial? And why did it have to be in the wilderness?


Always rejoicing (Ps 4)

A second psalm written at the time of Absalom’s rebellion. David was surrounded by bitter enemies, reckless allies and discouraged friends. Yet he found his own heart full of joy as he spoke to God.


Jesus: the Second Adam (3:22-)

At his baptism Jesus was declared to be the Son of God and King. Adam too was called God’s Son and appointed king over the earth. Adam was tempted and fell. Will Jesus triumph where Adam was defeated?
