THE SUNDAY SCHOOL JESl'S TEMPTED. Oct. 22, 1922. Luke 4:1-30. All temptations to evil come from the devil, and he is no respecter of persons. It is said that "death loves a shining mark." It is cortain loves a shining mark at which to hurl his darts of temptation. The higher a soul stands in the favor of God, tire greater is his desire to p?il\ it down into the mire of sin an ' the olough of despond. There are two reasons why Satan tempts men. The one is thit he wants to destroy their souls by keeping them away from Christ. If they have pccepted Christ, he knows th.it he cannot destroy their souls, so he tries lo destroy their influence for God. Satan knew enough to know some thing of what Christ's coming t.o earth meant. He had very largely had con trol of the world, but Jesus had come to overthrow his power. If he could destroy Him, or bring Him into dip favor with God, Satan felt that his kingdom would be secure. So ho came in person to make tire attack upon Him. We should nover forget that Satan is a real person, that he is far wiser and more powerful than any other being that we have to do with, save God alone. It is very unfortunate that there is a class of writers, among whom are some of the popular expositors of the Sunday school lessons, who teach that the temptations of the Sa viour were merely mental suggestions that came to Him during the time of His retirement in the wilderness. It should be remembered that this ac count of His temptations must have been given to the disciples by Jesus Himself or by the Holy Spirit. In either case, what was said must have been true. When He said it was Satan, we must accept that statement, or else accuse Him either of ignor ance or of falsehood. Whether these three temptations were scattered through the forty day* or came as the conclusion of a long series that had run through all of those days, we cannot tell. In what form Satan appeared we do not know, and it does not matter. It Is to be noticed that in these temptations there is nothing that may be considered as open or outbreaking fwV The 8,n Was so covered over that many a man under the same cir cumstances would probably not have seen It. Jesus was hungry. It was natural and proper that He should satisfy His hunger Satan tried to make Him use divine power, not primarily for Tw f??d' bUt merely to show hat He was the Son of God. Jesus never used His divine power for His rvLreV0r mer6,y t0 prove HI. Inity. Had He been willing to show more "signs," no doubt He could have had larger crowds following Him through all His ministry. The devil took Jesus up to the top of a high mountain, and "showed r? """ a" the W?I*??n. of the world in a moment of time." How this could be done we do not know. __ 8 U8e,ess to speculate. With His infinite knowledge and omnipres ence Jesus could easily have seen the whole world. Satan was shrewd In this- ?Ptat'?n- "id Practically * J.'
