The Temptations Common to Man
Trent • Sermon • • 517 views
Jesus victoriously undergoes a series of three carefully crafted temptations in order to demonstrate for us his victory over evil and his perfect ministry for us as a high priest. Secondarily, Jesus shows us the way to deal with Satan, sin and our temptation, deffending ourselves with the Word of God and not our own strength or reason.
Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” But he answered, “It is written, “ ‘Man…

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.

The Gospel of Luke
Satan's efforts to tempt Jesus in Luke 4:1-13 are unique to the unique Son of God, and his perfect righteousness is unique.

Matthew: The King and The Kingdom

Jesus faced incredible temptation after the monumental event that was his baptism. He was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the Devil. This leading by God's spirit was not a temptation to sin, it was merely a test. But a major aspect of this test was temptation to sin by the Devil Himself. Jesus wins decisive victory over Satan, and he uses the same weapons that he grants to us as well - the Spirit and the Word.

Adam, when tempted, failed. So Christ, “the last Adam” (1 Cor. 15:45) must now be tempted, in order that by his victory over the tempter he may, for all who believe in him, undo the results of the first Adam’s failure.
In the beginning of the Old Testament we find the temptation of the first man, Adam. In the beginning of the New Testament we find the temptation of the second Adam, Jesus. Adam and Jesus are the only two men in human history to be without sin. They are the only examples of what it means to be truly…
