Discover the Word Will Put Your Concept of Temptation on Trial

This week, Discover the Word hosts, Elisa Morgan, Bill Crowder and Mart DeHaan are bringing the biblical account of The Temptation of Jesus to the table for a fascinating examination of the 40 days He spent in the wilderness being tempted by Satan.

Temptation is oft envisioned as something that sneaks up on Christians and catches us in a moment of weakness.

The account found in Luke 4, however, is quite contrary to that assumption.

Jesus was not surprised or tested in a moment of weakness. Rather, He was “led by the Spirit” into the wilderness to face the Enemy.

Jesus, having just been baptized, was declared “full of the Holy Spirit” … and then was led into temptation in the desert. Coincidence? With the Son of God involved, coincidence is unlikely!

The Discover the Word team breaks the story down and analyzes parallel passages from the other gospels in this fascinating series. As they mine for nuggets of truth and wisdom they uncover tangible ways we can to prepare to face temptation in our lives today.
