The temptations of Jesus are well known. After a 40 day fast in the wilderness, Jesus was at the point of severe starvation. Satan chose to confront Him when He was at His weakest point (because Satan is a jerk). Of course, Jesus did not succumb to the temptations, but there is more to the story. The Bible says that the Holy Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness INTENTIONALLY so that Satan could tempt Him! Why was that necessary? The Bible also says Jesus was tempted at all points, just like us. But how is that possible and what does it mean? We’ll discuss it on this week’s podcast.
