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. 4:5–12)— there a mistake in recording the wilderness temptation of Christ by Matthew or ?

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

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