When someone joins the military, their first real assignment is to make it through the rigors of boot camp. The difficult and harsh conditions there are meant to prepare soldiers for the much harsher and more stressful time of real conflict and war. Immediately following Jesus’ baptism, the Gospel writers tell us that Jesus was put through his own boot camp out in the Judean wilderness with none other than Satan as his drill sergeant. There in the mountainous wild, Satan tries to get Jesus to abandon the kind of ministry God has called him to do. Listen and learn about what tempted Jesus and why, and how all of that mirrors our own lives and world.
