Mark's version is so short it is almost comical.
"And the Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him."
Imagine being in Mark's church. Imagine hearing only this about the Temptation. It leaves us with a lot of questions, and very few answers.
- Why did the Spirit drive him to temptation?
- Why the "wilderness"?
- What did the temptations look like?
- What does it mean that he was with the wild beasts?
- How did the angels wait on him?
- What is going on?
