Justin,Angie And Corkey Fall Into The Temptations Of Satan
In Speak Of The Devil,Professor Bumble got sunburned and needs to recover for more than 30 days thus delaying the necessary repairs for the flying house for everyone to get back into the 20th century.They are all currently situated in the Jordan River,where Jesus was baptized by John The Baptist in the last episode.
While Justin,Angie,Corkey,SIR and their young fisherman friend,Moab are catching some fish,they all begin to worry about Jesus,who was headed to the wilderness and undergo Satan's temptation before beginning his mission of preaching the Good News.Our main character decided to follow him in the wilderness.They all got together and brought perishable food for Jesus.As they proceed into the wilderness,they find Jesus being tempted by Satan.As they find him,their belongings and food all fell down the cliff which made them very hungry.
In the first temptation,Satan asked Jesus to turn stones into bread and rejected his request.But upon hearing this,Justin and Corkey asked the stones to become food to relieve themselves of hunger.They got excited as they were converted into food like chocolates and syrup.Unfortunately,Justin and Corkey were brought into a peculiar place and got scared as dinosaurs and monsters began to chase them.
In the second temptation,Satan asked Jesus that all the riches of the world will be given if he worships him.While Jesus rejects to bow unto him,Angie saw the crown and the jewels and desire to have them.He began to worship Satan and began to possess the crown she liked.Unfortunately,she saw herself in the mirror wearing the crown and turned into an ugly witch that made her really scared.She started to run away after this.
In the final temptation,Jesus asked Satan to stop testing him and saw our main characters all lying in the ground.He asked them to wake up and they all learned the bad effects of being greedy.
This is arguably the best episode of the series.The viewers will definitely feel for Justin,Angie and Corkey for the experienced they have after falling into the temptations of Satan.It was one dark experience that would definitely haunt the young viewers and feel sorry for them.Also,they also get an idea on how people fall into temptation which normally happens through deception and how Satan is indeed a great deceiver.Aside from that,they also learn how not to fall into them by watching how Jesus handled while being tempted by Satan.Even an adult like me would surely learn a lot from it especially when trying to overcome one's weaknesses.
Aside from the lessons learned about temptation,I also would like to give credit for the animation and the writers of the episode especially when the involvement of dinosaurs,monsters and witches were set in place without to the point of being awkward nor exaggerated.
This episode will definitely be remembered by the young viewers many decades from the time they first saw it.
