Sermon on Luke 4:1-13 - The Temptation of Jesus

The temptation of Jesus is inseparably connected with what precedes it and what follows it. Moreover, it is as historical as what precedes it, i.e., Jesus' baptism, and as what follows it, i.e., Jesus' preaching ministry. Jesus' temptation by Satan in the wilderness was an actual incident in His life, Mat. 12:29, which cannot be reduced to superstition or psychological derangement or mythology.
