Jesus Is Tempted by the Devil
4 1Jesus returned from the Jordan River. He was full of the Holy Spirit.* The
Spirit led Jesus into the desert. 2There the devil tempted Jesus for 40 days. Jesus
ate nothing during that time. When those days were finished, Jesus was very hungry.
3The devil said to Jesus, "If you are the Son of God, tell this rock to become bread."
4Jesus answered, "It is written [in the Scriptures* ]: 'It is not just bread that
keeps people alive.'"
5Then the devil took Jesus and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment
of time. 6The devil said to Jesus, "I will give you all these kingdoms and all the
power and glory that is in them. It has all been given to me. I can give it to any
person I want. 7I will give it all to you, if you will only worship me." 8Jesus
answered, "It is written [in the Scriptures* ]: 'You must worship the Lord your
God. Serve only him!'"
9Then the devil led Jesus to Jerusalem. The devil put Jesus on a very high place
of the temple.* He said to Jesus, "If you are the Son of God, jump off! 10It is
written [in the Scriptures* ]: 'God will command his angels to take care of you.'
11It is also written: 'Their hands will catch you so that you will not hit your
foot on a rock.'"
12Jesus answered, "But it also says [in the Scriptures* ]: 'You must not test (doubt)
the Lord your God.'"
13The devil finished tempting Jesus in every way and went away
to wait until a better time.
Jesus Teaches the People
14Jesus went back to Galilee with the power of the Holy Spirit.* Stories about Jesus
spread all over the area around Galilee. 15Jesus began to teach in the synagogues.*
All the people praised him.
