The temptation of Jesus

1FULL of the Holy Spirit, Jesus returned from the Jordan, and for forty days he wandered in the wilderness, led by the Spirit and tempted by the devil. During that time he ate nothing, and at the end of it he was famished.


3The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.”

4Jesus answered, “Scripture says, ‘Man is not to live on bread alone.’”

5Next the devil led him to a height and showed him in a flash all the kingdoms of the world.

6“All this dominion will I give to you,” he said, “and the glory that goes with it; for it has been put in my hands and I can give it to anyone I choose.

7You have only to do homage to me and it will all be yours.”

8Jesus answered him, “Scripture says, ‘You shall do homage to the Lord your God and worship him alone.’”

9The devil took him to Jerusalem and set him on the parapet of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down from here;

10for scripture says, ‘He will put his angels in charge of you,’

11and again, ‘They will support you in their arms for fear you should strike your foot against a stone.’”

12Jesus answered him, “It has been said, ‘You are not to put the Lord your God to the test.’”

13So, having come to the end of all these temptations, the devil departed, biding his time.

Jesus in Galilee

14THEN Jesus, armed with the power of the Spirit, returned to Galilee; and reports about him spread through the whole countryside.

15He taught in their synagogues and everyone sang his praises.

16He came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and went to the synagogue on the sabbath day as he regularly did. He stood up to read the lesson

17and was handed the scroll of the prophet Isaiah. He opened the scroll and found the passage which says,

18“The spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me; he has sent me to announce good news to the poor, to proclaim release for prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind; to let the broken victims go free,

19to proclaim the year of the Lord's favour.”

20He rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down; and all eyes in the synagogue were fixed on him.

21He began to address them: “Today”, he said, “in your hearing this text has come true.”

22There was general approval; they were astonished that words of such grace should fall from his lips. “Is not this Joseph's son?” they asked.

23Then Jesus said, “No doubt you will quote to me the proverb, ‘Physician, heal yourself!’ and say, ‘We have heard of all your doings at Capernaum; do the same here in your own home town.’

24Truly I tell you,” he went on: “no prophet is recognized in his own country.

25There were indeed many widows in Israel in Elijah's time, when for three and a half years the skies never opened, and famine lay hard over the whole country;

26yet it was to none of these that Elijah was sent, but to a widow at Sarepta in the territory of Sidon.

27Again, in the time of the prophet Elisha there were many lepers in Israel, and not one of them was healed, but only Naaman, the Syrian.”

28These words roused the whole congregation to fury;

29they leapt up, drove him out of the town, and took him to the brow of the hill on which it was built, meaning to hurl him over the edge.

30But he walked straight through the whole crowd, and went away.

31Coming down to Capernaum, a town in Galilee, he taught the people on the sabbath,

32and they were amazed at his teaching, for what he said had the note of authority.

33Now there was a man in the synagogue possessed by a demon, an unclean spirit. He shrieked at the top of his voice,

34“What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are -- the Holy One of God.”

35Jesus rebuked him: “Be silent”, he said, “and come out of him.” Then the demon, after throwing the man down in front of the people, left him without doing him any injury.

36Amazement fell on them all and they said to one another: “What is there in this man's words? He gives orders to the unclean spirits with authority and power, and they go.”

37So the news spread, and he was the talk of the whole district.

38On leaving the synagogue he went to Simon's house. Simon's mother-in-law was in the grip of a high fever; and they asked him to help her.

39He stood over her and rebuked the fever. It left her, and she got up at once and attended to their needs.

40At sunset all who had friends ill with diseases of one kind or another brought them to him; and he laid his hands on them one by one and healed them.

41Demons also came out of many of them, shouting, “You are the Son of God.” But he rebuked them and forbade them to speak, because they knew he was the Messiah.

42When day broke he went out and made his way to a remote spot. But the crowds went in search of him, and when they came to where he was they pressed him not to leave them.

43But he said, “I must give the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, for that is what I was sent to do.”

44So he proclaimed the gospel in the synagogues of Judaea.
