What Came Before:
FROM the earliest years of Jesus the Holy Spirit of God
was with him, growing as he grew. And in the hour when he was baptized and the
form of a dove was seen hovering over him, Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit
as no man before him had been filled, for he was the Son of God. At that hour he
knew more fully than he had ever known before the work that he should do to save

The Spirit of God sent Jesus into the desert, there to be for a time alone
with God and to plan out his work for men.
So earnest was the thought of Jesus in the desert, so full was his union with
God, that for forty days he never once ate anything, or felt any wish for food.
But when the forty days were ended, then suddenly hunger came upon him, and he
felt faint and starving, as any other man would feel who had fasted for so long

but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’”

Satan Tried to Tempt Christ
James Tissot, 1895
The Temptation of Christ
Ary Scheffer, 1854
Carl Bloch, 1850
At that moment Satan, the evil spirit, came to Jesus, just as he comes to us,
and put a thought into his mind. It was this thought, "If you are the Son of
God, you can do whatever you please, and can have whatever you wish. Why do you
not command that these stones be turned into loaves of bread for you to eat?"
Angels Ministered Unto Him
James Tissot c. 1895
Jesus knew that he could do this, but he knew also that this power had been
given to him, not for himself, but that he might help others. He said to the
evil spirit, "It is written in God's book, ' Man shall not live by bread alone,
but by every word that cometh out of the mouth of God."
Then the evil spirit led Jesus to Jerusalem, the holy city, and brought him to
the top of a high tower on the Temple, and said to him, "Now show all the people
that you are the Son of God by throwing yourself down to the ground. You know
that it is written in the book of Psalms, 'He shall give his angels charge over
thee; and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy
foot against a stone.' "
But Jesus knew that this would not be right, for it would be done not to please
God, but to show himself before men and as a trial of God's power, when God
himself had not commanded it. He answered, "It is written again, 'Thou shalt not
tempt the Lord thy God.' "
Again the evil spirit tried to lead Jesus into doing wrong, as he leads us all.
He led him to the top of a high mountain, and caused a vision of all the
kingdoms of the world and their glory to stand before the eyes of Jesus. Then he
said, "All these shall be yours; you shall be the king of all the earth if you
will only fall down and worship me." Then Jesus said to him, "Leave me, Satan,
thou evil spirit' For it is written, 'Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and
him only shalt thou serve.' "
When Satan found that Jesus would not listen to him, he left him; and then the
angels of God came to Jesus in the desert and gave to him the food that he
