The Temptation of Jesus
Jesus walked around for 40 days where he ate nothing, the devil tempted him and told him he should turn stone into bread so he has something to eat. Jesus replies "Man shall not live by bread alone"
What does this mean? You shall not live by bread alone...ok, but you do need some food right? Looked back at Matthew's version of this story, apparently you are supposed to live off of the words of God.
Satan says he will give Jesus authority over all of the kingdoms of earth if he just worships Satan. Jesus says you should only worship God.
Jesus knows he is talking to Satan right? Why is this even a temptation?
Satan asks Jesus to jump off the top of the temple and have the angels save him. He says he shouldn't test God.
Again, why exactly is this a temptation?
Jesus Begins His Ministry
With the power of the spirit (I'm assuming this is the Holy Spirit) Jesus returned to Galilee and started teaching in the synagogues.
Jesus Rejected at Nazareth
Jesus returns to his home town of Nazareth and went to the synagogue where he stood up and read. He read some scroll and everyone was happy about what he said and that he spoke well. They asked if he was Joseph's son and asked him if he could do the same thing here as he did in Capernaum. He said that no prophet is ever accepted in his hometown and he told a story about Elijah. They were filled with wrath and drove him to the edge of town where they were going to throw him off of a cliff, but he got away.
What am I missing here? Why did they want to kill him?
Jesus Heals a Man with an Unclean Demon
There was a guy possessed by a demon in Capernaum who started yelling at Jesus. He said "be silent and come out of him!" and the guy was suddenly fine, the demon had not harmed him. People were amazed and spread the word.
Are there clean demons?
Jesus Heals Many
He healed Simon's mother in law and then everyone around who was sick came to Jesus and he healed them as well. Many demons came out of people and they said he was the son of god.
Jesus Preaches in Synagogues
Jesus tried to leave but the people didn't want him to. He said he has to spread the good news to the kingdom
