Matthew 4:1-11 Yeshua is tempted by HaSatan

Did you know that Yeshua quoted the Old Testament when the he was confronted by HaSatan.

The Temptation of Jesus
Matthew 4:1 Then Yeshua was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry (Just like Mosheh was tempted for 40 years). 3 And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these …stones to become loaves of bread.” 4 But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone,   but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

(Deuteronomy 8:3 And he humbled you and let you hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that he might make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word[a] that comes from the mouth of the Lord.)

5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and set him on the pinnacle of the temple 6 and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written, “‘He will command his angels concerning you,’ and “‘On their hands they will bear you up,      lest you strike your foot against a stone.’”

(Psalm 9:11-12  For he will command his angels concerning you    to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.)

7 Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’”

(Deuteromony 6:16 “You shall not put the Lord your God to the test, as you tested him at Massah )

8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to him, “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan!   For it is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God      and him only shall you serve.’”

(Deuteronomy 6:13 It is the Lord your God you shall fear. Him you shall serve and by his name you shall swear.)

11 Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to him.
