Temptation of Christ – Bida

This illustration by Bida shows Lucifer pointing out the glorious kingdoms of the world to Jesus from a mountain, urging the Savior to adore him in exchange for earthly power. Christ points to Heaven, responding: "Begone, Satan: for it is written, The Lord thy God shalt thou adore and him only shalt thou serve" (Matt. 4:10).
