Then the Spirit led Jesus into the desert to be tempted by the Devil. 12
After spending forty days and nights without food, Jesus was hungry.
Then the Devil came to him and said, "If you are God's Son, order these stones to turn into bread."
But Jesus answered, "The scripture says, "Human beings cannot live on bread alone, but need every word that God speaks.' " 25
Then the Devil took Jesus to Jerusalem, the Holy City, set him on the highest point of the Temple,
and said to him, "If you are God's Son, throw yourself down, for the scripture says, 3 "God will give orders to his angels about you; they will hold you up with their hands, so that not even your feet will be hurt on the stones.' "
