Then Jesus himself was baptized and his ministry began. The first three chapters of Luke contain many prophecies about Him – a child is born who will save his people. He will fill them with good things; He’s the Messiah, the deliverer. It’s a great time. And yet we read that the Holy Spirit led him out into the wilderness where Jesus was tested by the devil.
