Life of Jesus – Bread Alone
Week 10 – How long was Jesus in the desert? 40 Days.
Jesus’ faith trusted the Lord God at the point of every temptation he faced. Jesus rebuked Satan as He quoted scripture from the Old Testament. Satan left defeated and the Lord God sent angels to minister to Jesus.
Matthew 4:2-3 (NIV)
2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” 4Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
“It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”
