It was a real temptation

Jesus was really tempted in the wilderness, and it wasn’t a token temptation, as if He were playing out a scene, saying the right things on cue, reading from a script; No, it was very real. Deadly real. Painfully real. It’s hard for us to accept that the sinless Son of God could have been tempted, but He was, and it was a terrible temptation or testing, and He prevailed!
