Yeshua/Jesus vs. Satan: "...who correctly handles the word of truth." -2 Timothy 2:15

  Jews and Christians: Satan knows Scripture! "Now the serpent was more subtle and crafty than any living creature of the field which the Lord God had made. And he [Satan] said to the women, Can it really be that God has said, You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?" -Genesis 3:1 Amplified Bible

 

For Jewish respect and impact, this passage of Scripture taken from Jewish New Testament, David H. Sterns

Luke 4: 1 Then Yeshua*, filled with the Ruach HaKodesh*, returned from the Yarden* and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness 2 for forty days of testing by the Adversary. During that time he ate nothing, and afterwards he was hungry. 3 The Adversary said to him, “If you are the Son of God, order this stone to become bread.” 4 Yeshua answered him, “The Tanakh* says, ‘Man does not live on bread alone.'" (Deut.8:3)”
5 The Adversary took him up, showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world, 6 and said to him, “I will give you all this power and glory. It has been handed over to me, and I can give it to whomever I choose. 7 So if you will worship me, it will all be yours.”
8 Yeshua answered him, “The Tanakh says, ‘Worship Adonai your God and serve him only.'" (Deut.6:13-14)
9 Then he took him to Yerushalayim*, set him on the highest point of the Temple and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, jump from here! 10 For the Tanakh says,
‘He will order his angels to be responsible for you
and protect you.
11 They will support you with their hands,
so that you will not hurt your feet on the stones.”
(Psalm 91:11-12)

12 Yeshua answered him, “It also says, ‘Do not put Adonai* your God to the test.” (Deut.6:16) 13 When the Adversary had ended all his testings, he let him alone until an opportune time. 14 Yeshua returned to the Galil* in the power of the Spirit, and reports about him spread throughout the countryside. 15 He taught in their synagogues, and everyone respected him.
16 Now when he went to Natzeret*, where he had been brought up, on Shabbat* he went to the synagogue as usual. He stood up to read, 17 and he was given the scroll of the prophet Yesha’yahu*. Unrolling the scroll, he found the place where it was written,
18 “The Spirit of Adonai is upon me;
therefore he has anointed me to announce Good News to the poor;
he has sent me to proclaim freedom for the imprisoned
and renewed sight for the blind,
to release those who have been crushed,
19 to proclaim a year of the favor of Adonai.” (Isaiah 61:1-2, 58:6)

"When the word of God is opened without
reverence and without prayer; when the thoughts and affections are not fixed upon God, or in harmony with His will, the mind is clouded with doubts; and in the very study of the Bible, skepticism strengthens. The enemy takes control of the thoughts, and he suggests interpretations that are not correct. Whenever men are not in word and deed seeking to be in harmony with God, then, however learned they may be, they are liable to err in their understanding of Scripture, and it is not safe to trust their explanations. Those who look to the Scriptures to find discrepancies, have not spiritual insight. With distorted vision they will see many causes for doubt and unbelief in things that are really plain and simple." -
"STEPS TO CHRIST, by Ellen G. White; United Publishers ©1973

It is written: "God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. ... If anyone says 'I love God,' yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.  And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother." -1 John 4:16, 20,21
