How Many Times Was Jesus Tempted By The Devil In The Wilderness?
1. To turn stones into bread - KJV Matt 4:3
2. To cast himself from the temple to prove he was the son of God - KJV Matt 4:6
3. To have unlimited worldly power - KJV Matt 4:9
Ironically these are good examples of the three major ways Satan tempts people:
Temptation of appetite. Temptation of pride. Temptation of power.
none. The tests are lame and there are no fallen angels or a rebellious satan that caused a rukus in heaven and was cast to earth (of all places in this big huge universe).
The account depicts jesus struggling against his own flesh and its desires and wants.
mighty satan offers jesus, material wealth, healing when he hurts himself and food. LOL. These are not tests neither are they temptations really, a babe in christ could pass these!
Three temptations mentioned like others here have said, but of course these were not the only times He was tempted.
A significance to the story was how He was tempted, and how the temptations were overcome. He was tempted in His mind, just like you and I, and He overcame by saying what God said about the temptations. I wrote a hub about it.

If the Lord doesn't give us more than we can bear, is that to say that the Devil does?I am not being facetious and prefer not to have any mean answers or an answer from someone who doesn't believe in such things to begin with. Thanks.

We are always hearing about Satan tempting people to do bad things against god's wishes, but according to biblical scholars, he was once god's favorite.So, the question is: Who, or what tempted Satan to go bad? There had to be evil present for him to fall from god's graces. No...

Why do most who profess to be Christian give to satan more power and authority than scripture does? 1 John 3:8 it is said, "To this end was the Son of God manifested, that he might destroy the works of the Devil." **Jesus defeated him. He only has power to tempt, he cannot...
