of The United Methodist Church

First Sunday in Lent, the temptation of Jesus, wild area with gathering clouds, text from Mark: He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan, and he was with the wild beasts, and the angels waited on him.

The Wilderness of Temptation

The Spirit drove Jesus out into the wilderness.
He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan;
and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him.
Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee,
proclaiming the good news of God, and saying,
"The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near;
repent, and believe in the good news."
Mark 1:12-15
