The Relevance Of Jesus Being Tempted By Satan

Satan’s temptation
 If Jesus is God as well as man how could Satan expect to tempt him?  Mark simply states that Jesus was tempted by Satan (1:13) but Matthew (4:1-11) and Luke (4:1-13) elaborate the story.  It is claimed that during Jesus’ alleged forty days’ sojourn in the desert following his baptism by John, Satan tempted him with promises of an earthly kingdom if Jesus would only worship him.
