Stupid Bible Stories part 31 – Jesus Tempted by Satan.

Share

Matthew 4:8-10
8  Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9  And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
10  Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

I’ve actually already talked about these verses and how it indicates the Earth is flat.  But there is another giant bit of goofiness in them.  If the Devil knew that Jesus was God’s Son, and actually God himself, how the hell did he think he could tempt him?

I mean this is my no means the extent of it.  Satan tries to tempt Jesus a number of places.  What exactly could you offer an omnipotent being?  It’s not like a Playstation is going to do it.
