Jesus had just been baptised, and the Spirit descended on him. And it would seem that immediately, the Spirit leads him into the wilderness to be tempted by Satan. The Spirit leads Jesus to suffer and be tempted, and he succeeds like no human has before. Jesus, the second Adam, says no to the temptation of Satan. And Jesus, the promised Saviour, tells us that we are in a time of God’s favour, a time when he is bringing the good news for the spiritually poor.
