Traditionally the story of Jesus’ 40-day temptation in the wilderness is read on the first Sunday in Lent, near the beginning of our own 40-day Lenten journey. This brief course leads participants through Matthew’s version of the temptation story and invites them to consider each of the temptations, and Jesus’ reply, to their own lives and to current events.
This course is eligible for 0.5 CEU.
