The Temptation of Jesus (Matthew 4:1-11, Mk 1:12-13, Lk 4:1-13)
What is Temptation?
Temptation is the desire to do something, especially something wrong or unwise.
To tempt is to make someone want to have or do something, especially something that is unnecessary or wrong. A person can be tempted to do something against God’s desires for our lives.
After the baptism of Jesus Christ, He was led by the spirit of God into the wilderness where he was tempted by the devil.
