From The Pulpit of DUMC

#139. Rev. Shane Page - February 21

Episode Summary

This Sunday, having concluded our sermon series on apprenticing with Jesus, we return to the liturgical calendar of the church and will observe the first Sunday of Lent. Each year the appointed reading for this particular Sunday concerns Jesus’s flight into the desert where for forty days he underwent intense temptations orchestrated by the devil. This week we may spend some time considering just who is the Devil in biblical theology and of what role temptations consist in the interior life. This week’s reading will come from Mark 1:9-15.
