Jesus, tempted in the desert,

Lonely, hungry, filled with dread:

‘Use your power,” the tempter tells him;

‘turn these barren rocks to bread!’

‘Not alone by bread,’ he answers,

‘can the human heart be filled.

Only by the Word that calls us

Is our deepest hunger stilled!’

(CH4 Hymn 338)


Then he began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering & be rejected by the elders, the chief priests & the scribes & be killed & after three days rise again. He said all this quite openly. And Peter took him aside & began to rebuke him. But turning & looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter & said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things.”

(Mark 8 : 31 - 33)
