The Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the angels were ministering to him.
Commissioned by the Holy Spirit as the only man – for there was none other – fit to pay on behalf of all other humans the punishment for their bad karma, Yeshu must now face up to that test; what immense suffering he the Mashiga must undergo!
He is alone, vulnerable and hungry.
‘Look after yourself; you have the power,’ urges Satan. ‘It is not to be that way,’ says Yeshu.
And God looked after him.
