<264> Thesis: Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Introduction: The last thing that Luke tells us in the paragraph before us is that the devil left Jesus "until an opportune time." Interestingly, though, Luke only mentions "the devil" one more time in the remaining 20 chapters of his record of the success of our Kinsman Redeemer and that reference has nothing to do with any further aggression against Jesus. As we wind up our study of the qualifying of Jesus for the status of "Kinsman Redeemer", we are going to look into this business of the devil's "departure until an opportune time."
