The Temptation of Christ: In the Wilderness and in the Garden
This 90+pp book addresses a subject that is often misunderstood, but which outlines the fundamental issues surrounding the Master, and his relationship with the Father. Based on a publication originally available from Brother Michael Walker, additional articles by our pioneer brethren and others are included. Special consideration is given to the character of Yahshua, and his response to the issue of temptation presented to him.
It specifically deals with his experiences in the Wilderness of Judea following his baptism, and concludes with a consideration of the three emotional prayers given in the Garden of Gethsemane, and their connection with his atoning sacrifice.
This exposition shows that the pioneer teaching on this subject is consistent with Scripture, and upholds the exposition that although the Lord Jesus bore the unclean and defiled nature of his fellows, he was able, by the power of "God in Christ" to completely reject the sinful suggestions of the Tempter and in all his experiences he maintained the Mind of the Spirit. Thus, "Let this mind be in you as it is in Christ Jesus" (Php. 2:5).
