The Temptation of Jesus (Luke 4:1-13)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: Jesus was tempted but he did not sin.
In our bible story we learned:
1. Man does not live by bread alone.
2. You shall only worship God.
3. You shall not put the Lord to the test.
Where is the Gospel?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
Jesus was tempted in the wilderness and passed the test so that we who have failed could receive his righteousness. Now he stands before the Father as our high priest making intercession for us. This he does, full of grace and mercy, knowing the difficulty we face in our battle against sin and temptation. The passages from Luke 4 that Jesus quoted are all from the account of Israel’s wandering in the desert. They wandered for forty years, grumbling and complaining and ultimately failing. Jesus accomplished in forty days what they could not in forty years!

Pray about it! Praise Jesus for being the better Adam and succeeding where we fail showing us that he is the only one able to save us from our sins.
