Jesus’ triumph over temptation began our way back MATTHEW 4:1–11
By June Renie
Today’s gospel narrates the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness. Soon after His baptism He was led by the Spirit of God into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. Jesus had been fasting for 40 days, by which time He was weak and hungry. Yet, He did not succumb to His tempter. He did not sin.
