Suffering Temptation: A Key Aspect of Jesusí Earthly Mission

Matthew 4:1 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

Hebrews 2:17-18 Therefore he was obligated in all things to be made like his brothers, that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make atonement for the sins of the people. For in that he himself has suffered being tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted.

Hebrews 4:15 For we donít have a high priest who canít be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but one who has been in all points tempted like we are . . .

Hebrews 5:7-10 He, in the days of his flesh, having offered up prayers and petitions with strong crying and tears to him who was able to save him from death, and having been heard for his godly fear, though he was a Son, yet learned obedience by the things which he suffered. Having been made perfect, he became to all of those who obey him the author of eternal salvation, named by God a high priest . . .
