The Tempter

“The Tempter”

On Sunday mornings, we have been studying the Gospel of Matthew.  This Sunday, we will begin a two-part look at the temptation of Jesus Christ (Matthew 4:1-4).  Matthew makes it clear that the “tempter” is the one who tempts Christ.  In Paul’s writings, he too refers to Satan as the tempter of believers today (ex. 1 Thess. 3:5).

Below is a helpful link that discusses Satan as the Tempter as presented in the Dictionary of Bible Themes.

Take some time over the next week or two to read the passages in the link.  Satan tempts believers today, but Jesus can help us to overcome him.  How?  Read the Bible and see for yourself.
