Jesus in the Desert

"The Spirit drove Jesus out into the wilderness and he remained there for forty days, and was tempted by Satan. He was with the wild beasts, and the angels looked after him" (Mk 1:12-13).

Have you ever wondered how Jesus might have passed His time for forty days in the desert?

Prayed? Yes. Fasted? Yes.

But I wonder what other things Jesus might have done...

This little cartoon with images by Si Smith and the song, "How He loves" by John Mark McMillan invites us to put ourselves into the Gospel story.

For forty days Jesus remained in the wilderness or as the little cartoon puts it:
"For my thirtieth birthday I gave myself some time away from it all"
