Daily Gospel Reading – Matthew 4:1-11

The Temptation of Jesusdailygospel_030517

4 Then Jesus was led up into the wilderness by the Spirit to be tempted by the devil. 2 And He had fasted for forty days and forty nights, and then He was hungry. 3 And the tempter came to Him and said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones be turned into bread.”

4 But He answered, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’[a]”

5 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, and set Him on the highest point of the temple, 6 and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written,

‘He shall give His angels charge concerning you,’[b]
and

‘In their hands, they shall lift you up,
lest at any time you dash your foot against a stone.’[c]”
7 Jesus said to him, “It is also written, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’[d]”

8 Again, the devil took Him up on a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their grandeur, 9 and said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me. ”

10 Then Jesus said to him, “Get away from here, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve.’[e] ”

11 Then the devil left Him, and immediately angels came and ministered to Him.
