Is there a mistake in recording the wilderness temptation of Christ by Matthew or Luke? MATTHEW 4:5–10 – cf. Luke 4:5–12

MATTHEW 4:5–10 (cf. Luke 4:5–12)— a mistake in recording the wilderness temptation of Christ by Matthew or Luke?

: According to both Matthew and Luke, the first temptation was to turn stones into bread to satisfy Jesus’ hunger. The temptation listed by Matthew took place at the pinnacle of the temple. The temptation listed by Matthew involved all the kingdoms of . However, although Luke mentions same events, lists them in reverse order—the kingdoms of are mentioned and the pinnacle of the temple mentioned . Which the correct order?

SOLUTION: It may be that Matthew describes temptations chronologically while Luke lists them climactically, that , topically. may be to express the climax desired to emphasize. Matthew 4:5 begins with the word “then” while verse 8 begins with the word “again.” In Greek, words suggest a more sequential order of the events. In Luke’s account, however, verses 5 and 9 each begins with a simple “and” ( nasb). The Greek in the case of Luke’s account does not necessarily indicate a sequential order of events. Furthermore, no disagreement on the that temptations happened.
