The temptation of Jesus has three parts.
- If you are the Son of God Stones to Bread.
- If you are the Son of God Angels charge of you.
- Give you kingdom just Bow down and worship.
The first two statements begin with the “If you are the Son of God”. Is the Devil testing Jesus because he is not sure whether Jesus is actually who he claims to be. Angels fallen are not omniscient. Did the Devil know for a fact that Jesus Christ was the Son of God when he asks the question “If you are the Son of God …”
The reason I ask this is Jesus did in fact produce a large amount of bread on at least two occasions but it wasn’t a sin to do this.
The reason I ask this is Jesus did in fact do the same thing when he was lead to a brow of a hill that they would throw him off it, but he passed through the midst of them and went away. It was not a sin to do this. (It is in the same chapter of Luke as the temptation).
It is like there are two questions of determining whether Jesus Christ is in fact the Son of God, and because of his answers the Devil knew he was in fact the Son of God, and then there is one actual temptation which is the similar temptation of Adam (You will have everything).
