ADVENT IN ISRAEL - 4
We journey with Jesus into the wilderness, where he is tempted by the devil. 'Command these stones to become bread!' But there's no need to negotiate - the matter has already been settled by scripture: 'It is written...' But in the next temptation, the devil also quotes scripture - subtle indeed! At Ein Gedi the rushing streams in the desert give life to Jesus' body, while the written word of God gives life to his soul.
