Jesus tested

We just learned about Jesus as a young boy.

Let's learn more about when Jesus was tested.

Some time after Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, he was led out into the wilderness.

When he was out there, the devil tried to trick him into disobeying God.

Jesus was in the wilderness for 40 days without eating or drinking, so he was very hungry!
The devil knew he was hungry, so he told him to use his power as the Son of God to turn stones into bread.
Jesus told him that he did not live just by eating bread, but on the word of God.

Then the devil said if he really was Jesus, that he should be able to jump off a cliff and have angels rescue him.
Jesus told him that you should not put God to the test like that.

Next the devil offered him all of the kingdoms in the whole world!
Jesus told him that he would only worship the Lord God.

After that the devil left him and Jesus left the wilderness.
