JESUS IN THE WILD
Join us this Lent as we journey with Jesus together into the wild, and take a look at the remarkable scene in Luke 4:1-14 between Jesus and our adversary in the desert.
In Jesus in the Wild you’ll take a 40-day journey into the heart of one of the most unusual, and often most misunderstood, stories in the Gospel accounts. In this encounter, following his baptism in the Jordan, and before his Isaiah 61 declaration of the saving ministry he had come to fulfill, Jesus is alone with the adversary—the one whose works he had come to destroy (1 John 3:8). He faces three tests or “temptations”—all aimed at unseating him from his identity, his belovedness, and his purpose as the Son of God.
Understanding how Jesus faced down the accuser in the wild, you and I will be more fully equipped to address every challenge that comes our way in the wild places in our own lives.
