  44. Chapter Four Summary of Chapter Four Following his baptism Jesus went from the Jordan into the Judæan wilderness in order to confront the devil. For forty days the devil tested Jesus during which time he did not eat or drink anything.

  45. Chapter Four Personal comment At the time of writing this I had a great conversation with a former pastor, who has experienced the wilderness and described that it is far from being a ‘God-forsaken’ place, but rather a place where ‘the presence of God is powerfully evident’. (Continued).

  46. Chapter Four This makes the temptation of Christ, and of us, all the more interesting when it comes in a place where the presence of God is felt and known, i.e. at times when we feel most at ease, rather than at times when we may feel abandoned, alone or in peril!
