The Three Temptations of Christ by Sandro Botticelli.

Christ and the Devil, I

Luke 4:3-13; Matthew 4:1-11; Mark 1:13

After Christ is baptized in the Jordan, he leaves to spend time alone in the desert. Here, he finds that he is not really alone. Satan arrives, keen to tempt Jesus, with the hopes of making him one of his servants. He tempts Jesus to work three miracles, each of which would make Jesus become selfish and arrogant, the kind of personality Satan can control. Needless to say, Christ resists each offer.

For artists, this episode was a wonderful opportunity to create a character for Satan. He appears as a man in some paintings, and a kind of man-goat in others, particularly in the Middle Ages.

"1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came and said to him, “If you really are the Son of God, order these stones to turn into bread.” 4 Jesus answered, “As Scripture says, ‘Human beings do not live by only eating bread, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” 5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and placed him on the top of the Temple. 6 “If you really are the son of God, then throw yourself off,” he told Jesus. “As Scripture says, ‘He will order his angels to save you from harm. They will catch you so that you won’t fall by tripping over a stone.’” 7 Jesus answered, “As Scripture also says, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’”

"8 Then the devil took Jesus to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in all their glory. 9 He said to Jesus, “I will give you all these if you fall down on your knees and worship me.” 10 “Go away, Satan!” said Jesus. “As Scripture says, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God and serve him, and him alone.’” 11 Then the devil left him, and angels came to look after him.””
