The scripture lesson today is taken from the Gospel of Luke, the fourth chapter beginning at the first verse. It is known as the temptation of Jesus.
The story of the temptation of Jesus is one of my favorites. And one of the reasons, is that, in so many times when I'm reading the gospel I think to myself "well that's Jesus. I can't pattern myself like that. He doesn't know what my life is like, Jesus is God working it out in the flesh. But here, Jesus is going through a very human experience, that is temptation.
