And what wasBethlehem, 108:is that we are allowed to know about the temptation in order to teach us, as human beings, a neededBethlehem, 108:and triumph. He taught us thereby how to meet temptation; what to expect, as disciples preparingBethlehem, 109:whereby evil can be turned into good. He met temptation with no great new technique or revelation.Bethlehem, 109:knew, what He had been taught and told. He met temptation each time with "It is written," (Matt.,Bethlehem, 116:give the clue to the whole process. The ultimate temptation is doubt. The test we have all to faceBethlehem, 117:of divinity) that determines our attitude in temptation and our response to the problem presentedBethlehem, 118:in which we dwell, and with this the first temptation concerned itself.

We shall see how in the second temptation He was tempted by glamor, and with theBethlehem, 119:called into activity by the devil in the third temptation, and the illusion of temporal power to beBethlehem, 121:a prostitution of reality, and constitute the temptation which Christ so triumphantly met.

This temptation is different from the first, though itBethlehem, 123:His divinity. This He did not do in the earlier temptation. The devil in this test quotes scriptureBethlehem, 124:strongest, and in this lies the potency of this temptation. Bethlehem, 125:As one studies the way in which Christ met this temptation one is inclined to believe that (havingBethlehem, 125:in His Own Divinity) He simply ignored the temptation. His method was so brief and concise, andBethlehem, 125:as to detail. The way out, in this particular temptation, is dual: to recognize it for what it is,Bethlehem, 127:carried in itself the seeds of the final temptation. He had triumphed over materialism and overBethlehem, 127:one rules oneself, have in them the germs of temptation, and it was here that the devil nextBethlehem, 128:use. In the case of Christ in the third temptation, His "conscious values or purposes" were beingBethlehem, 128:of God might be indefinitely delayed. This temptation was an attack at the very root of theBethlehem, 128:of power over others. The subtlety of this temptation consists in the fact that appeal is made toBethlehem, 130:Faith, by Dr. van der Leeuw, p. 19. Christ's temptation consisted of a demanded recognition ofBethlehem, 135:self control, and henceforth His immunity from temptation, as we can understand it, had beenDestiny, 99:idealism is great, as I have said, and the temptation is to hide behind the glamor of fighting forDiscipleship1, 34:by you with each other.
