Jesus Passed the Test

“The temptation narratives (Matthew 4:1-11; Mark 1:12-13; Luke 4:1-13) are to be read in light of both Adam and Israel as sons of God who failed the test… the people of God from Adam (a failure), through the Israelites (failures), to Jesus, the only fully pleasing Son of God since before Adam sinned.” Graeme Goldsworthy
