Jesus is Tempted in the Wilderness 

As they watched, Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, turned and strode away from them. He left the company and friendship of his cousin and made for the desert. He walked on, not stopping until the last face was miles behind him and his only companions were the rocks and the wild animals. Before long a serpent slithered by his feet and a voice permeated his thoughts.  
The devil said:     
What are you doing out here, all alone? Don’t trust God’s care. Grab what you can now. You know your own power. Eat and drink - it won’t matter. Look at those rocks, imagine the sweet smell of loaves that size. If you want to deprive yourself thenne – but do it tomorrow.  Can’t you just smell that bread?
