The Judean wilderness: Photos of the desert where Jesus resisted Satan

Jesus spent 40 days in YeShimon, which means “Place of Desolation.”

After he was baptized by John, Jesus spent 40 days in the Judean wilderness, where he overcame the temptations of Satan (Mark 1):

At once the Spirit drove him out into the desert, and he remained in the desert for forty days, tempted by Satan. He was among wild beasts, and the angels ministered to him.
