    Temptation of Jesus

    Then the Spirit led Jesus up into the wilderness so that the devil might tempt him. After Jesus had fasted for forty days and forty nights, he was starving. The tempter came to him and said, “Since you are God’s Son, command these stones to become bread.”

    Jesus replied, “It’s written, People won’t live only by bread, but by every word spoken by God.”
