Gospel - Lk 4:1-13

1. And Jesus, filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan. And he was urged by the Spirit into the wilderness
2. for forty days, and he was tested by the devil. And he ate nothing in those days. And when they were completed, he was hungry.
3. Then the devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, speak to this stone, so that it may be made into bread.”
4. And Jesus answered him, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’ ”
5. And the devil led him onto a high mountain, and he showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time,
6. and he said to him: “To you, I will give all this power, and its glory. For they have been handed over to me, and I give them to whomever I wish.
7. Therefore, if you will worship before me, all will be yours.”
8. And in response, Jesus said to him: “It is written: ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and you shall serve him alone.’ ”
9. And he brought him to Jerusalem, and he set him on the parapet of the temple, and he said to him: “If you are the Son of God, cast yourself down from here.
10. For it is written that he has given his Angels charge over you, so that they may guard you,
11. and so that they may take you into their hands, lest perhaps you may hurt your foot against a stone.”
12. And in response, Jesus said to him, “It is said: ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’ ”
13. And when all the temptation was completed, the devil withdrew from him, until a time.
