Satan Tried to Tempt Jesus – Tissot

This watercolor image  by J. Tissot shows the devil tempting Christ for the second time. This is the moment when Satan carries Our Lord to the pinnacle of the temple in Jerusalem, as narrated in Mt. 4:5-7 : "Then the devil took him up into the holy city, and set him upon the pinnacle of the temple, And said to him: 'If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down, for it is written: That he hath given his angels charge over thee, and in their hands shall they bear thee up, lest perhaps thou dash thy foot against a stone'. Jesus said to him: 'It is written again: Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God'."
