Gustave DorĂ© 1832 – 1883
engraving — 1865
Luke 4:5 - The Holy Spirit leads Jesus into the desert, where he wanders for forty days. On the fortieth day the devil tries to tempt him. On a mountain he shows Jesus all the countries of the world. The devil says he'll let Jesus rule them, if only he agrees to adore him. Jesus answers he only adores God.

The story appears in differing versions Matthew 4:1-11, Mark 1:12-13 and Luke 4:1-13.
