Then the devil took him into Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest part of the temple. He said to Jesus, "If you are the Son of God, jump from here!
Scripture says, 'He will put his angels in charge of you to watch over you carefully.
They will carry you in their hands so that you never hit your foot against a rock.'"
Jesus answered him, "It has been said, 'Never tempt the Lord your God.'"
After the devil had finished tempting Jesus in every possible way, the devil left him until another time.
Jesus returned to Galilee. The power of the Spirit was with him, and the news about him spread throughout the surrounding country.
He taught in the synagogues, and everyone praised him.
Then Jesus came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. As usual he went into the synagogue on the day of worship. He stood up to read the lesson.
The attendant gave him the book of the prophet Isaiah. He opened it and found the place where it read:
"The Spirit of the Lord is with me. He has anointed me to tell the Good News to the poor. He has sent me to announce forgiveness to the prisoners of sin and the restoring of sight to the blind, to forgive those who have been shattered by sin,
to announce the year of the Lord's favor."
