Mark 1:12-13 – Tempted by the Devil

|| Matthew 4:1-11[1]

MK1:12 Immediately the Pneuma pressured Jesus[2] to go out into the desert. MK1:13 There he remained for forty days as the Devil kept tempting him. Though he was among the wild beasts the angels attended to him.[3]


[1] Matthew 4:1-11: For details see notes in Nazarene Commentary 2000 on Matthew.

[2] Immediately the Pneuma pressured Jesus: Or, KJV: the spirit driveth; NOR: took him; KNX: sent him out; WEY: impelled him; RHM: urged him. The words “instantly” and “immediately” are favorite words of Mark and his narrative moves along at a breath-taking pace as though he must write with great haste.

[3] Among the wild beasts the angels attended to him: Or, NOR: surrounded by wild beasts; KNX: lodged with the beasts. Only Mark mentions this interesting point. The desert seems empty, but at night animals come alive and surely the Nazarene heard and saw the wilderness animals that then moved about in that spring time desert. We can only paint the picture with our own imagination.
