Jesus-The New Adam

02-18-2018David Lins

The Gospel reading on the first Sunday of Lent is great for people like myself who have self-diagnosed attention span issues. In its entirety, it is only five sentences long.

That doesn’t mean it isn’t rich. Did you notice the little detail that informed us that Jesus was in the desert “with the wild beasts?” Why does that matter?
