Satan Took Jesus

Think on this passage, “Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple…” (Matthew 4:5). After that Satan challenged Jesus to throw Himself down to see whether the angels would rescue Him, since He claimed to be the Son of God.
Jesus allowed Satan to take Him to that high place. It was not as though Jesus submitted to Satan, but Jesus knew that He had to endure strong temptation that He might show us the way, which was to live by Scripture, even quoting it when we need to do so as He did.
