How to Resist Temptation

By March 1, 2013

The three synoptic (or "same viewpoint") Gospels—Matthew, Mark and Luke—tell us about Satan's temptation of Jesus in the wilderness. This story is one of the best teachings in the Bible on how to resist temptation.

Temptation of Jesus

As Jesus prepared to start his earthly ministry, Satan attacked the Lord with his full arsenal. In similar ways, the Devil attempts to ruin us today, with the unchanged goal he had with Jesus in the wilderness—to destroy the plan of God.

In this Bible story summary of the temptation of Jesus, we learn exactly how Jesus fought the Devil. We discover, too, how to apply this powerful strategy against sin and temptation in our own lives.
