[Rev. Charles R. Brown in Congregationalist and Christian World.]

"Then," the narrative says—in the hour of wondrous uplift and quickened spiritual consciousness—"was Jesus led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil." Right in the face of that open heaven, with the divine voice sounding in his ears and the mighty baptism of the Spirit possessing his soul, he was hurried away and for forty days he saw nothing but the desert and the devil and the wild beasts. "Forty days!" We are familiar with the use of that term "forty" in Scripture where the exact number was not known. We often say, "I have told you forty times"—meaning thereby an indefinite number of times.
