Another Day, Another Mountain

πŸ’™πŸ’› SCRIPTURE: Luke 4:1-13, Complete Jewish Bible

4 Then Yeshua, filled with the Ruach HaKodesh, [the Holy Spirit,] returned from the Yarden [the banks of the Jordan River] and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness 2 for forty days of testing by the Adversary. During that time he ate nothing, and afterwards he was hungry.

3 The Adversary said to him, β€œIf you are the Son of God, order this stone to become bread.”

4 Yeshua answered, β€œThe Tanakh says, β€˜[A person] does not live on bread alone.’”[a]

5 The Adversary took him up, showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world, 6 and said to him, β€œI will give you all this power and glory. It has been handed over to me, and I can give it to whomever I choose. 7 So if you will worship me, it will all be yours.”

8 Yeshua answered, β€œThe Tanakh says, β€˜Worship Adonai your God and serve Adonai only.’”[b]

9 Then [the Adversary] took him to Yerushalayim, set him on the highest point of the Temple and said to him, β€œIf you are the Son of God, jump from here! 10 For the Tanakh says,

β€˜Adonai will order the angels
to be responsible for you and to protect you.
11 They will support you with their hands,
so that you will not hurt your feet on the stones.’”[c]

12 Yeshua answered him, β€œIt also says, β€˜Do not put Adonai your God to the test.’”[d]

13 When the Adversary had ended all three testings, [the Adversaery] let Yeshua alone – until an opportune time.
