This paper discusses how the temptation of Christ is a complete story with an introduction, three trials and an ending. It looks at how, even though temptation is a short passage, it has many layers that can be revealed upon analysis. By comparing and contrasting texts regarding the temptation, we can gain a better understanding of the spiritual and literal meanings behind the text. This paper serves as an analysis of "Matthew 4: 1-11" in light of the other instances of the temptation in other texts. It supports the thesis that the temptation serves as a means to authenticate Jesus for the rest of the stories found in the Gospels.
