Temptations of Jesus

Jesus after his sojourn in the wilderness and fasting for forty days was met by the Devil and Tempted. The first temptation was the Devil asked Jesus to cast the stones into bread and Jesus replied that man should live by the word of God and not by food. The second temptation was he was taken to a high place and told by the Devil to throw himself down as the Angels of God will protect him. Jesus’ reply was that we should not test God. The third temptation was: the Devil showed him all the kingdoms of the World and said it is yours if you worship me. Jesus replied that we should worship God alone. Thus Jesus was successful in overcoming all temptations.

Temptations of Jesus as an idiom would mean a person who does not compromise on moral and ethical principles in spite getting a favorable stance if done so.

Example: The Old Testament Joseph adopted the Temptations of Jesus when he was enticed by Potiphar’s wife.

Bill Clinton failed the temptations of Jesus when he had an affair with Monika Lewinsky.
Post modern philosophy compromises with the Temptations of Jesus.
