Temptation of Christ - Wikipedia The Temptations of Christ 12th century mosaic at St Marks Basilica Venice The temptation of Christ is detailed in the Gospels of Matthew1Mark2 and Luke The Life Of Christ Men Of The Wilderness 3 According to these texts after being baptized by John the Baptist Jesus fasted for forty days and nights in the Judaean Desert During this time Satan appeared to Jesus and tried to tempt him Jesus having refused each temptation the devil then departed and Jesus returned to Galilee Temptations were hedonism hunger satisfaction egoism spectacular throw might and materialism kingdoms wealth John the Evangelist in his epistle calls these temptations in world as lust of eyes materialism lust of body hedonism and pride of life egoism 4 Temptations aim to mislead and pervert three main human characteristics to think wish and feel which are inside mind soul and heart as Jesus alludes in Greatest Commandment These are related with transcendentals or ultimate ideals in three areas of human interests science truth arts beauty and religion goodness Christians are called to search for divine virtues faith hope and love that relate them directly to God who Himself is Truth Beauty and Goodness 5 The writer of the Epistle to the Hebrews also refers to Jesus having been tempted in every way that we i e Christian believers are 6 Marks account is very brief merely noting the event Matthew and Luke describe the temptations by recounting the details of the conversations between Jesus and Satan Since the elements that are in Matthew and Luke but not in Mark are mostly pairs of quotations rather than detailed narration many scholars believe these extra details originate in the Q Document The temptation of Christ is not explicitly mentioned in the Gospel of John but in this gospel Jesus does refer to the devil the prince of this world having no power over Him 7 Contents 1 Literary genre 1 1 Discussion of status as parable 1 2 Use of Old Testament

References 10 Sources 11 External links Literary genreedit Discussion of status as parableedit Discussion of the literary genre includes whether what is represented is a history a parable a myth or compound of various genres This relates to the reality of the encounter 8 Sometimes the temptation narrative is taken as a parable reading that Jesus in his ministry told this narrative to audiences relating his inner experience in the form of a parable 9 Or it is autobiographical10 regarding what sort of Messiah Jesus intended to be 11 Writers including William Barclay have pointed to the fact that there is no mountain high enough in all the world to see the whole world as indication of the nonliteral nature of the event and that the narrative portrays what was going on inside Jesus mind 12Dominican theologian Thomas Aquinas explained In regard to the words He showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them we are not to understand that He saw the very kingdoms with the cities and inhabitants their gold and silver but that the devil pointed out the quarters in which each kingdom or city lay and set forth to Him in words their glory and estate 13 The debate on the literality of the temptations goes back at least to the discussion of George Benson d 1762 and Hugh Farmer 14 A traditional Catholic understanding is that the temptation of Christ was a literal and physical event Despite the difficulties urged against the historical character of the three temptations of Jesus as recorded by St Matthew and St Luke it is plain that these sacred writers intended to describe an actual and visible approach of Satan to chronicle an actual shifting of places etc and that the traditional view which maintains the objective nature of Christs temptations is the only one meeting all the requirements of the Gospel narrative 15 The Catechism of the Catholic Church states The Gospels speak of a time of solitude for Jesus in the desert immediately after his baptism by John Driven by the Spirit into the desert Jesus remains there for forty days without eating he lives among wild beasts and angels minister to him At the end of this time Satan tempts him three times seeking to compromise his filial attitude toward God Jesus rebuffs these attacks which recapitulate the temptations of Adam in Paradise and of Israel in the desert and the devil leaves him until an opportune time 16 The temptation in the desert shows Jesus the humble Messiah who triumphs over Satan by his total adherence to the plan of salvation willed by the Father Use of Old Testament referencesedit The account of Matthew uses language from the Old Testament The imagery would be familiar to Matthews contemporary readers In the Septuagint Greek version of Zechariah 3 the name Iesous and term diabolos are identical to the Greek terms of Matthew 4 18 Matthew presents the three scriptural passages cited by Jesus Deut 83 Deut 613 and Deut 616 not in their order in the Book of Deuteronomy but in the sequence of the trials of Israel as they wandered in the desert as recorded in the Book of Exodus 1920 Lukes account is similar though his inversion of the second and third temptations represents a more natural geographic movement from the wilderness to the temple 21 Lukes closing statement that the devil departed from him until an opportune time22 may provide a narrative link to the immediately following attempt at Nazareth to throw Jesus down from a high place23 or may anticipate a role for Satan in the Passion cf Luke 223 2425 Content of the Matthew and Luke narrativesedit In Lukes Luke 41–13 and Matthews Matthew 41–11 accounts the order of the three temptations and the timing within or at the end of the 40 days differ no explanation as to why the order differs has been generally accepted Matthew Luke and Mark make clear that the Spirit has led Jesus into the desert Fasting traditionally presaged a great spiritual struggle 26 Elijah and Moses in the Old Testament fasted 40 days and nights and thus Jesus doing the same invites comparison to these events In Judaism the practice of fasting connected the body and its physical needs with less tangible values such as selfdenial and repentance 27 At the time 40 was less a specific number and more a general expression for any large figure 28 Fasting may not mean a complete abstinence from food consequently Jesus may have been surviving on the sparse food that could be obtained in the desert 2930 Although Mark Matthew and Luke combine Jesus fast of forty days with his temptation other Biblical passages suggest that Jesus fast was a test to be completed before his encounter with Satan Mark does not provide details but in Matthew and Luke the tempter Greek ὁ πειραζων ho peirazōn31 or the devil Greek ὁ διαβολος ho diabolos tempts Jesus to Make bread out of stones to relieve his own hunger Jump from a pinnacle and rely on angels to break his fall The narrative of both Luke and Matthew has the devil quote Psalm 9111–12 to show that God had promised this assistance although the devil implies that the passage may be used to justify presumptuous acts while the Psalm only promises that God will deliver those who trust and abide in Him Worship the devil in return for all the kingdoms of the world The Temptations Jesus Went Through In The Desertedit 1 Stones into breadedit Jesus Tempted in the Wilderness Jésus tenté dans le désert James Tissot Brooklyn Museum The temptation of making bread out of stones occurs in the same desert setting where Jesus had been fasting Alexander Jones32 reports that the wilderness mentioned here has since the fifth century been believed to be the rocky and uninhabited area between Jerusalem and Jericho with a spot on Mount Quarantania traditionally being considered the exact location The desert was seen as outside the bounds of society and as the home of demons such as Azazel Leviticus 1610 Gundry states that the desert is likely an allusion to the wilderness through which the Israelites wandered during the Exodus and more specifically to Moses 30 Jesus struggle against hunger in the face of Satan points to his representative role of the Israelites however he does not fail God in his urge for hunger 33 This temptation may have been Jesus last aiming towards his hunger 34 In response to Satans command Jesus replies It is written One does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God 35 Only in Matthew is this entire sentence written 2 Pinnacle of the templeedit Most Christians consider that holy city refers unquestionably to Jerusalem and the temple to which the pinnacle belongs is thus identified as the Temple in Jerusalem Gospel of Matthew refers to the temple 17 times without ever adding in Jerusalem That Lukes version of the story clearly identifies the location as Jerusalem may be due to Theophilus unfamiliarity with Judaism 36 What is meant by the word traditionally translated as pinnacle is not entirely clear since the Greek diminutive form pterugion little wing is not extant in other architectural contexts 37 Though the form pterux large wing is used for the point of a building by Pollianus38 Schweizer feels that little tower or parapet would be more accurate and the New Jerusalem Bible does use the translation parapet The only surviving Jewish parallel to the temptation uses the standard word šbyt roof not wing Our Rabbis related that in the hour when the Messiah shall be revealed he shall come and stand on the roof šbyt of the temple Peshiqta Rabbati 62 c–d39 The term is preserved as wing in Syriac translations of the Greek 40 Robert H Gundry 1994 lists three sites at the Jerusalem temple that would fit this description30 On the top of the temples main tower above the sanctuary proper some 180 feet above ground the location that artists and others using the traditional translation generally set the story Atop the lintel of the main gateway into the temple the most prominent position where the pair could easily have been seen 41 A tower on the southeast corner of the outer wall that looks down into the Kidron Valley In later Christian tradition this is the tower from which James the brother of Jesus was said by Hegesippus to have been thrown by way of execution – contradicting the earlier account of Josephus who says the death was by stoning 42 If thou be the Son of God cast thyself down from hence For it is written He shall give his angels charge over thee to keep thee And in their hands they shall bear thee up lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone Luke 49–13 citing Psalms 9112 Once more Jesus maintained his integrity and responded by quoting scripture saying Again it is written You shall not put the Lord your God to the test Matthew 47 from Deuteronomy 616 – Jesus implies that God has established man as a worshipper of faith not in certainty 3 Mountainedit For the final temptation the devil takes Jesus to a high place which Matthew explicitly identifies as a very high mountain where all the kingdoms of the world can be seen The spot pointed out by tradition as the summit from which Satan offered to Jesus dominion over all earthly kingdoms is the Quarantania a limestone peak on the road from Jerusalem to Jericho 15 Instead of a literal reading George Slatyer Barrett viewed the third temptation as inclining to a doubt of Christs mission or at least the methodology Barrett sees this as a temptation to accept the adulation of the crowds assume leadership of the nation to overthrow Roman rule take the crown of his own nation and from there initiate the kingdom of God on earth The kingdoms Jesus would inherit through Satan are obtained through love of power and political oppression Barrett characterizes this as the old but ever new temptation to do evil that good may come to justify the illegitimacy of the means by the greatness of the end 43 The mountain is not literal if the temptations only occur in the minds eye of Jesus and the Gospel accounts record this minds eye view as related in parable form to the disciples at some point during the ministry 44 Satan says “All these things I will give you if you fall down and do an act of worship to me ” Jesus replies Get away Satan It is written The Lord your God shall you worship and him alone shall you serve 45 referencing Deuteronomy 1020 Readers are intended to recognize that although Satan and Gods power could ultimately achieve similar things it is the source of Satans power that

published material that conveys ideas not attributable to the original sources Relevant discussion may be found on the talk page July 2011 Once the temptations are over the narrative has the devil depart and Jesus being looked after by angels In the original Greek of Matthew devil left him was in the historic present tense indicating a lack of permanence i e that the devil would later return to further tempt Jesus which Luke spells out explicitly While both Mark and Matthew mention the angels Luke does not and Matthew seems once again here to be making parallels with Elijah46 who was fed by ravens The word ministerserved is often interpreted as the angels feeding Jesus and traditionally artists have depicted the scene as Jesus being presented with a feast a detailed description of it even appearing in Paradise Regained This ending to the temptation narrative may be a common literary device of using a feast scene to emphasize a happy ending28 or it may be proof that Jesus never lost his faith in God during the temptations 32 In the War Scroll found at Qumran angels are described as forming an army to battle evil which is somewhat at odds with most interpretations of the portrayal of angels here but it could indicate that the angels in the passage should instead be interpreted as ministering to Jesus by driving off the devil After forty days and nights of no food Jesus needed sustenance and once the temptations had ceased miraculous aid was at hand God kept his promise to take care of Jesus Temptations of Christ in Gospel of Markedit The Mark Mark 112–13 account is very brief Most of the Mark account is found also in the Matthew and Luke versions with the exception of the statement that Jesus was with the wild animals Despite the lack of actual text shared among the three texts the language and interpretations Mark uses draw comparison among the three Gospels The Greek verb Mark uses in the text is synonymous with driving out demons and the wilderness at times represents a place of struggle 47 The two verses in Mark used to describe Jesus Temptation quickly progress him into his career as a preacher Temptations of Christ in Gospel of Johnedit The temptation of Christ is one of the notable omissions in the Gospel of John However some readers have identified parallels inside John which indicate that the author of John may have been familiar with the Temptation narratives in some form 48 Stones into Bread → John 62631 to make bread in the wilderness Jump from the temple → John 218 to perform a Messianic sign in the temple

page July 2011 As Jesus was true human he was tested on three main abilities that define human to think wish and feel They should lead human to perceive truth beauty and goodness Corruption of these abilities leads into egoism spectacular throw might materialism kingdoms wealth and hedonism hunger satisfaction These are exactly with what Jesus was tempted In First Epistle of John they are called pride of life lust of eyes and lust of body Catholic Church teaches that believer should search for theological virtues faith hope and love that relate them directly to God who Himself is Truth Beauty and Goodness and Jesus in Greatest Commandment alludes that they are in mind soul and heart Catholics who enter consecrated life give religious vows that are ultimately opposite to devils temptations obedience vs egoism poverty vs materialism and purity vs hedonism In temptations Jesus showed in practice human virtues called cardinal that are mentioned in Old Testament and were known to antique philosophers fortitude courage when his life was in danger because he was very hungry after fasting for 40 days and rejected devils proposition to make bread hedonism prudence caution when rejected

man’s faculties for participation in the divine nature for the theological virtues relate directly to God They dispose Christians to live in a relationship with the Holy Trinity They have the One and Triune God for their origin motive and object The theological virtues are the foundation of Christian moral activity they animate it and give it its special character ” CCC 181213 51 Traditional view is that the devil on each occasion is trying to make Jesus commit a particular sin avarice by offering power over the kingdoms of the world gluttony by suggesting a way to relieve Jesus hunger and hubris by suggesting that Jesus jump and rely on angels to break his fall Another view popular for a time for example see Dostoyevskys The Grand Inquisitor in The Brothers Karamazov was that the devil wasnt so much tempting Jesus as presenting him with the different options he could take to be a Messiah and making him choose one Evangelicals point to the word peirazo which is often translated as tempt but is more accurately translated test This Greek word is the same as that used when the lawyer approached Jesus to test him by asking which is the greatest commandment Matt 22 36 also when the Pharisees sought to test Jesus when they asked Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason at all Matt 19 3 i e the devil was testing Jesus understanding of his role rather than trying to lure him to sin 29 It is unclear whether or not Jesus understood his role as the Messiah following his Baptism 52 Transitioning from man to Messiah or the embodiment of God Jesus is tested in order to surpass the laws of human restriction 34 Rejected options under this interpretation are Someone who alleviates physical hardships as manifested by miraculously feeding himself when hungry A magician and miracle worker who wins converts by spectacular acts as manifested by surviving a jump from a high pinnacle That the devil places Jesus in a very public location rather than the numerous high pinnacles in the desert gives credence to this view A political liberator from the oppression of the Romans as manifested by having power over the kingdoms of the world Another view popularized by the book The Politics of Jesus by John Howard Yoder suggests that the three temptations of Jesus foreshadow the three points in his ministry where political temptations were the greatest right after the miracle of the loaves and fish was performed when the hungry crowds wanted to make him king when he cleansed the Temple at which time he had already secured enough political and moral support from the crowds to start a political movement and the night at Gethsemane when he played with the idea of calling on twelve legions of angels to stop his arrest – he could have initiated a holy war had he chosen to There remains the question of the validity of the temptations offered to Jesus As the Son of God he would be able to attain any of these desires without the aid of the Devil He was in essence being tempted with offers that he already had in his hand However Hebrews 415 states that Jesus is one who has been tempted in every way just as we are The author of the book of Hebrews clearly purports that Jesus was tempted in the same way as other men i e without supernatural powers Granted this scriptural passage it only makes sense that Jesus was required to pass these tests before God without relying on powers that other men do not have For readers the Bible is a medium to follow in Jesus actions Fleming writes of the Temptation when we begin to question the ways of God let us pluck up courage from the victory of Christ 34 Granted this scriptural passage Jesus was required to pass these tests before God without relying on powers from an unholy source In the temptations according to Benedict XVI Satan seeks to draw Jesus from a messianism of selfsacrifice to a messianism of power in this period of wilderness Jesus is exposed to danger and is assaulted by the temptation and seduction of the Evil One who proposes a different messianic path to him far from Gods plan because it passes through power success and domination rather than the total gift of himself on the Cross The Life Of Christ Men Of The Wilderness This is the alternative a messianism of power of success or a messianism of love of the gift of self53 A resulting conclusion of noting similarities of the two events including the description of the event within Psalms 105 and 106 such as In the desert they gave in to their craving in the wasteland they put God to the test54 the reason for Jesus temptation was that the Lamb of God was taking on the sins of the forefathers of Israel who had rebelled against him when he led them with his Holy Spirit through the desert and as John the Baptist did in the desert around the same time to prepare the way for him show everyone the path of righteousness so we all would repent and understand 55 He did all of this so that the lost sheep of Israel and later all people56 would believe in him and know him the good Shepherd who saves57 from condemnation and death58 by laying down his life for his sheep those who come to him to learn from him59 who hear his voice and know him60 that they would have eternal life in him61 and be able to call on the Name of the Lord and have the Lord be their Righteousness and Salvation62

The Glass Nathan Toulanes novel encompasses the spot where The temptation of Christ occurred French Artist Jean Giroud Moebius created an artbook called 40 days dans le desert B depicting a similar theme Andrew Lloyd Webbers Jesus Christ Superstar has brief references to Christ being tempted by mortal pleasures and Stephen Schwartz devotes a scene to it in Godspell A stanza on the poem O Operário em Construção The Building Operary by Vinícius de Moraes alludes to the temptation as well In W Somerset Maughams The Razors Edge the narrator uses the gospel of Matthew to introduce his own ending in which Jesus accepts death on the cross for greater love hath no man while the devil laughs in glee knowing full well that man will reject this redemption and commit evil in spite of if not
