The desert is filled with temptation. The temptation to recreate our mythical past, the temptation to blame others, the temptation to sink in despair.
Jesus goes through temptations too. They come to him, presented in a very reasonable way. It’s VERY practical. It’s familiar, tried and tested. Surely we should follow the same way? Despite its practicality, its workability and simpleness, Jesus sees through the temptations. I hope to further look at these over the next few days.
This piece presents the temptation to be the king of kings. Jesus is offered this coveted prize through a well known piece of music.
