Source's Used in Sunday's Service on the Temptation of Jesus

On Sunday at First Christian Church of St. Joseph, we had a special worship service using music, video and readings about the temptation of Jesus Christ in Matthew's Gospel.  Our vocalists at FCC sang Bruce Springsteen's "Hungry Heart," The Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil" and Bob Dylan's "Gotta Serve Somebody."

I read commentary about each temptation from Thomas G. Long's excellent commentary on Matthew.

Also, we watched the temptation scene from the 1999 miniseries Jesus.  Although no portrait of Jesus on film is perfect, the Jesus in this miniseries is superior in many ways to the non-human Jesus of earlier films.  I particularly like the way it handles the temptation scene
