    • "The Great Temptation ":Each of the four gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) treat the temptation of Jesus somewhat differently. Mark recounts the event in two versus (quoted above). Matthew and Luke tell a detailed story but reverse the order of the second and third temptations. The gospel of John does not mention the event at all.
      Matthew, Mark, and Luke portray the temptation as taking place immediately following Jesus' baptism (when he left the river Jordan and went into the wilderness for 40 days). Certainly, Jesus did retire to the wilderness following John's baptism, but since this baptism marked the beginning of his public career, it is more likely that this was a time of communion with God and deciding upon the procedures to be followed in the coming proclamation of the Kingdom. If this is so, then Jesus' temptation must have occurred before his baptism. This is also consistent with the Father's expression of an approval at Jesus' baptism ("This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased"), which would naturally come after Jesus had met and overcome his "great temptation."
    UP 134:9   The Time of Waiting. No New Testament Correspondence.
