Matthew 4:1-11; Mark 1:12-13; Luke 4:1-13 After John baptized Him, the Spirit of God sent Jesus into the desert. There He prepared for His future ministry. Jesus prayed and did not eat for forty days. Then Satan came to tempt Him. He wanted to stop Jesus from saving all people. Satan tried to make Jesus submit to him. But Jesus used the Word from God's Holy Book to refute Satan, and Satan had no power over Him.
