Luke 4:1 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 4

The Temptation of Jesus.[a] Filled with the holy Spirit,[b] Jesus returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the desert

Footnotes:

  1. 4:1–13 See note on Mt 4:1–11.
  2. 4:1 Filled with the holy Spirit: as a result of the descent of the Spirit upon him at his baptism (Lk 3:21–22), Jesus is now equipped to overcome the devil. Just as the Spirit is prominent at this early stage of Jesus’ ministry (Lk 4:1, 14, 18), so too it will be at the beginning of the period of the church in Acts (Acts 1:4; 2:4, 17).
