Matthew 4:1 - 4:11 Introduction

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this teaching, Steve Gregg examines the story of Jesus' temptation in the wilderness from Matthew 4:1-11. Jesus fasted for 40 days before being confronted by Satan, who attempted to entice Jesus to sin. Gregg emphasizes the importance of correctly understanding and applying scripture, citing Psalm 91:11 as an example of Satan distorting the Word of God. He concludes by noting that Jesus ultimately resisted all of Satan's temptations and received affirmation from God as the beloved Son.
