Temptation

of Jesus
Then Jesus was led into the desert by the Spirit.
While He was there He didn’t eat or drink for 40
days, instead He prayed and talked to God.

After 40 days He was really hungry, and was ready


to eat some food, and that is when Satan tried to
trick Him.

“If you are God’s son, you could turn these stones
into bread, and have food to eat,” Satan said.

“God said, ‘Man does not live by bread alone, but


on the Word of God.” Jesus answered him.
“If you are truly God’s son you could throw
yourself off the temple, and God would send angels
to catch you. It says so in Psalms,” Satan was sure
he had Jesus now.

But Jesus calmly replied, “But it also says, “Do not


put the Lord Your God to the test.”
Finally Satan took Jesus up to a very tall mountain,
looking down on all the world, and said, “If you
bow down and worship me, I will give you all of
these kingdoms.”

Jesus looked at him, and said, “Be gone from me!


God has commanded that only God is to be
worshipped!”

And with that Satan left him, and angels came and
comforted Jesus.
