Summary:
Studies the temptations of our Lord; the lessons to be learnt from them are there whether we take the account of them in the Gospels as historical fact or pure symbol. But to take the story simply as symbol is to rob it of a great deal of its depth; and granted that Satan does exist it would be extremely foolish and dangerous to write him off as mere fantasy.
