We’re All Tested

Mark is brief and to the point in describing the beginning of Jesus' ministry. It happened so quickly - one minute, an inspiring baptism; the next, pushed out into the wilderness for a challenging 40 day test.  

Jesus sees "the sky split open and God’s Spirit, looking like a dove, come down on him. Along with the Spirit, a voice: 'You are my Son, chosen and marked by my love, pride of my life.'” And then - "At once, this same Spirit pushed Jesus out into the wild. For forty wilderness days and nights he was tested by Satan. Wild animals were his companions, and angels took care of him."

But why?
