The Message Highlights Again

You've read my blog before about the wonderful reading Bible that is The Message. It's not a Bible I'd trust for accuracy in study, but just for reading, it's great.

In reading Matthew 4 last night, it served to highlight something I've never noticed before in other translations.

When Jesus was tempted the three times by Satan, each time he responded by quoting scripture found in Deuteronomy. He did not quote from three different Tanahk ("Old Testament") passages, but only from Deuteronomy.

I have no idea if that has any significance whatsoever, but I did find it very interesting.
