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?
