Luke
3:38.4-4:6.1

Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan,

and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness for forty days, being tempted by the devil. He ate nothing in those days.

Afterward, when they were completed, he was hungry.

The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.”

Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’ ”

The devil, leading him up on a high mountain, showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

The devil said to him, “I will give you all this authority, and their glory, for it has been delivered to me; and I give it to whomever I want. If you therefore will worship before me, it will all be yours.”
