Jesus, like us, faced temptation. Unlike us, He triumphed over it. As with everything that the Master has done, there is a lot for us to learn from His reactions to the challenges put before Him.

When we think of Christ's temptation, usually our minds are drawn immediately to His temptation in the wilderness. It certainly couldn't have come at a worse time for our Lord. Alone, in the midst of desolation. Hungry. Weak. But the strength of the body was only a fraction of the faculties that Jesus had at His command.

Post-Modern English?

I've been wondering (since a few short hours ago) what future English will look like.
