      He does? How does this compare with Luke' portrayal of Jesus? And
      where is prayer mentioned in Mk 1:12-13?

      Have you noticed the links between the Gethsemane scene in Mark and his
      "testing" (NOT temptation) story? Would you call the Gethsemane scene
      a period of "spiritual austerity" (what ever this phrase means). It it
      not not presented as a struggle on Jesus' part to remain obedient to
      both a mission and that mission's constraints?
