The four temptations of Jesus

March 7, 2019

An extract from the Dean's sermon for Sunday, 10 March 2019:

 

“Forty days” is itself a biblical meme that occurs repeatedly in the Scriptures. It indicates an extended period of time during which major developments may occur.

 

For the anonymous Christian storyteller who shaped this story, this is the time when Jesus undergoes the challenges that any ancient hero was expected to survive in order to demonstrate their character and their skill.

 

This story is not a memory of a historical moment, but a meditation on the deeper truth that Jesus constantly had to choose faithfulness to God’s call on his life, rather than be seduced by second-best; an acceptable action in itself but not what God required of him.

 

That is a challenge we all face every day.

 

 

The full text of this sermon anbd links to the live video is available online.
