    How Many Times Was Jesus Tempted By The Devil In The Wilderness?

    Three times:
    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.
