    I have a question concerning the word "season" in this passage. I heard a preacher say that the devil left Jesus for three months (a season). Is this a right conclusion? Or does the word "season" simply mean "for some time"?

    kairos (Greek) is often used for short while, a little while - idiom just like we have today.

    See you in a while - how long is that?
    See you in a couple of days - 48 hours exactly?

    Every language has words like kairos (and chronos, also Greek for time and used "loosely" and idiomatically)

    See you later, alligator
