The devil said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread” (Luke 4:3).
The Judean wilderness earns its name; it is not a hospitable place for people, by any stretch of the imagination. It has little water, and not much in the way of food, unless you care to hunt the local wildlife. In fact, just about the only thing that can be found in abundance is rocks. The Nahal Tseelim, pictured here, is far from an anomaly in that regard.
