Jesus’ Meditation: Matthew 4
  • In the wilderness on what was Jesus meditating?
  • What we learn from Jesus’ mediation:
  • 1. He meditated on long chunks of Scripture rather than isolated verses
    • Larger portions give us a full thought, not a fragmented idea
    • We see the connections between the parts of a larger unit of thought
    • We give the Holy Spirit more to work with in renewing our minds
  • 2. Jesus allowed previous experience of God’s people to inform is response
    • Parallels between 40 years in the wilderness and Jesus’ 40 days.
  • 3. Meditation gives specific God-centered responses to temptation.
