What Came Before
From the earliest years of Jesus the Holy Spirit of God was with him, growing as he grew. And in the hour when he was baptized and the form of a dove was seen hovering over him, Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit as no man before him had been filled, for he was the Son of God. At that hour he knew more fully than he had ever known before the work that he should do to save men.

But He answered and said, It is written, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God."
The Spirit of God sent Jesus into the desert, there to be for a time alone with God and to plan out his work for men. So earnest was the thought of Jesus in the desert, so full was his union with God, that for forty days he never once ate anything, or felt any wish for food. But when the forty days were ended, then suddenly hunger came upon him, and he felt faint and starving, as any other man would feel who had fasted for so long a time.

At that moment the evil Satan came to Jesus either in person, or just as he comes to us, by putting a thought into our mind. He said, "If you are the Son of God, you can do whatever you please, and can have whatever you wish. Why do you not command that these stones be turned into loaves of bread for you to eat?"

The Temptation of Christ by Thoma
Jesus knew that he could do this, but he knew also that this power had been given to him, not for himself, but that he might help others. He said to the evil spirit, "It is written in God's book, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God."
Then Satan led Jesus to Jerusalem, the holy city, and brought him to the top of a high tower on the Temple, and said to him, "Now show all the people that you are the Son of God by throwing yourself down to the ground. You know that it is written in the book of Psalms, 'He shall give his angels charge over thee, and in their hands they shall bear you up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone."
But Jesus knew that this would not be right, for it would be done not to please God, but to show himself before men and as a trial of God's power, when God Himself had not commanded it. He answered, "It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God."
Again Satan tried to lead Jesus into doing wrong, as he tries to leads us all. He led him to the top of a high mountain, and caused a vision of all the kingdoms of the world and their glory to stand before the eyes of Jesus. Then he said, "All these shall be yours. You shall be the king of all the earth if you will only fall down and worship me." Then Jesus said to him, "Leave me, Satan, thou evil spirit. For it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shall thou serve."
Satan's Temptation Ended
Angels Ministered Unto Him
James Tissot, 1895
When Satan found that Jesus would not listen to him, he left him, and then the angels of God came to Jesus in the desert and gave to him the food that he needed.
