The Temptation of Jesus

Then the Spirit led Jesus into the desert to be tempted by the Devil. After spending forty days and nights without food, Jesus was hungry. Then the Devil came to him and said, “If you are God’s Son, order these stones to turn into bread.”

The Temptation of Jesus

But Jesus answered, “The scripture says, ‘Man cannot live on bread alone, but needs every word that God speaks.'”

Then the Devil took Jesus to Jerusalem, the Holy City, set him on the highest point of the Temple, and said to him, “If you are God’s Son, throw yourself down, for the scripture says,

God will give orders to his angels about you;

They will hold you up with their hands so that not even your feet will be hurt on the stones,'”

Jesus answered. “But the scripture also says,’Don’t put the Lord your God to the test.'”

Then the Devil took Jesus to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in all their greatness.” All this I will give you, ” the Devil said, “if you kneel down and worship me.”

Then Jesus answered, “Go away, Satan! The Scripture says, “Worship the Loard your God and serve only him!'”

Then the Devil left Jesus, and the angels came and helped him.
