The Temptations of Jesus #1: Not by Bread Alone
July 1, 1962
July 1, 1962. Running time 47:02. Thurman presents the baptism of Jesus as Jesus' first dilemma. Should he be baptized by John and risk appearing as an inferior? Or should he go through with it? Thurman likens this to the church. Should we join the church even though it is full of sinners? He continues by saying that all humans are spiritually hungry. And just as Jesus sought out John the Baptist, we should seek out nourishment in our lives.
