Beating temptation

First Sunday of Lent: Mark 1:12-15

12 At once the Spirit made him go into the desert,

13 where he stayed 40 days, being tempted by Satan. Wild animals were there also, but angels came and helped him.

14 After John had been put in prison, Jesus went to Galilee and preached the Good News from God.

15 “The right time has come,” he said, “and the Kingdom of God is near! Turn away from your sins and believe the Good News!”
