In The Wilderness, Jesus Is Tempted By Satan To Act Contrary To His Father’s Will
4 And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan. And He was being led in the Spirit in the wilderness 2 for forty days while being tempted by the devil. And He did not eat anything during those days. And they having been completed, He was hungry. 3 And the devil said to Him, “If You are[a] God’s Son, say[b] to this stone that it should become bread”. 4 And Jesus responded to him, “It has been written [in Deut 8:3] that ‘Mankind[c] shall not live on bread alone’”. 5 And having led Him up, he showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said to Him, “I will give You all this authority and their glory, because it has been handed-over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. 7 Therefore if You worship before me, it will all be Yours”. 8 And having responded, Jesus said to him “It has been written [in Deut 6:13], ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only’”. 9 And he led Him into Jerusalem and stood Him on the pinnacle of the temple. And he said to Him, “If You are God’s Son, throw Yourself down from here. 10 For it has been written [in Ps 91:11] that ‘He will command His angels concerning You that they might protect You’, 11 and [in Ps 91:12] that ‘They will lift You up on their hands that You may not ever strike Your foot against a stone’”. 12 And having responded, Jesus said to him that “It has been said [in Deut 6:16], ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test’”. 13 And having completed every temptation, the devil departed from Him until an opportune-time.

And they were saying, “Is not this One Joseph’s son?” 23 And He said to them, “You will surely speak this proverb to Me: ‘Physician, cure yourself’. Do also here in your hometown all-that we heard having taken place in Capernaum”. 24 But He said, “Truly I say to you that no prophet is acceptable[i] in his hometown. 25 And I say to you in accordance with [God’s] truth— there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah when the heaven was shut for three years and six months, when a great famine took place over all the land. 26 And Elijah was sent to none[j] of them, except to [the village of] Zarephath of-Sidon, to a widow woman. 27 And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet. And none of them was cleansed, except Naaman the Syrian”. 28 And they were all filled with fury in the synagogue while hearing these things. 29 And having arisen, they drove Him outside of the city, and led Him up to the brow of the hill on which their city had been built so as to throw Him down the cliff. 30 But He, having gone through the middle of them, was proceeding.
