In this text, we see Jesus experiencing the second and third temptations from the devil in the wilderness. The devil tries to use God’s Word, but out of context and for the opposite of its purpose. That worked with Adam and Eve; why didn’t it work with Jesus?
We also see the devil take Jesus to a mountaintop. When God met people on mountaintops, what significance did that have? The devil pretends to be God, but does it for his own purpose and fails.
