Luke’s Temptation Narrative

At the Yeshua in Context blog I have some commentary today on Luke’s Temptation account. Why does Luke emphasize the filling of the Spirit? How is Luke’s understanding of the Spirit more subtle than the usual way people think about Spirit-filling? How is it like the levels of Glory/Presence in the Torah and prophets? And why does Luke have a different order of temptations than Matthew? See the “Temptation in Luke” here.

For other articles on the Temptation: “The Father-Son Relationship in the Temptation” and “The New Israel and New Moses Theme and the Temptation.”
