Then was Jesus led up of the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
Green wood will not burn; dry wood soon takes fire; he then who, although he does not act the part of an incendiary, dries the wood in order that it may the sooner ignite, has a real share in the cause of the conflagration.
(W. H. Hutchings, M. A.)
