Jordan Exchanged for the Wilderness
Mark 1:12-13
And immediately the spirit drives him into the wilderness.…

From the baptism He went up, as it were, towards God as the "Beloved Son;" but from the temptation He comes earthward as the Son of Man. The Jordan lies on the heavenly, the wilderness on the earthly, side of Christ. There is a "river," but there is no wilderness, in heaven.

(Dr. Parker.)
