- The angels waiting on him is lovely. I've read a lot about the temptations (as in, in mentions in fiction, not purposefully or scholarly), but in context they don't seem to make sense, except for the third one. How is making bread wrong? The testing God, maybe, and if the point is (as noted in The Brothers Karamazov) that people be free to choose and not be manipulated by signs, that makes sense, but otherwise I am confused.

- Light has dawned, a great light in the shadow of death.

- So Jesus' main message here is repentance and the kingdom of heaven being near/beginning. In the sense that God is among them and he's here? Or in the sense that God's kingdom on Earth will be set up (spiritually/to some extent literally in the church, literally in his return)?

- 'who is called Peter' is cool for its noting of already recognisable characters in church history.

- See, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom. His main message being the kingdom of God was at hand. Repentance sets people free to experience that love, that joy, that communion with God and one another. Curing every disease and every sickness, too. This is what God does.
