Exegetical Outline: Luke 1:1-14
It is relevant to know that Jesus’ temptation is recorded in Matthew, Mark and Luke. In this particular book we are not able to see what had happened before Jesus wasled to the desert, but as we read Matthew and Mark, we understand that it happened almost immediately after He was baptized. I think this is important to know because we know that the Holy Spiritdescended on him like a dove and when we read in Luke 4:1 that he was full of the Holy Spirit, we are able to make the connection and understand the importance of the presence of God in such crucialmoment. The first couple of verses give us the background and context for us to dig deeper into Jesus’ needs as a human; “He was famished” (v.2) is written right before the temptation starts. Oneinteresting aspect of this passage is that even though Jesus was full of the Holy Spirit, the devil “led him” (v. 5) and “took him” (v. 9) while he tempted Jesus. It makes me question the reason why the devilhad power over Jesus to take him to places and lead him where he wanted Jesus to be. I also find very interesting that Jesus did not address directly to the Devil as in a conversation; He declaredScripture passages and said nothing else.
