  1. I do not believe Satan randomly picked Jesus’ temptations.

    Jesus was “prayed up” when he was approached by Satan.

    Jesus Is Tested in the Wilderness 4: 1-11pp — Mk 1: 12 , 13 ; Lk 4: 1– 13 1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted 1 a by the devil. b 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, c he was hungry. 3 The tempter d came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, e tell these stones to become bread.” 4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ 2 ” f 5 Then the devil took him to the holy city g and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6 “If you are the Son of God,” h he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’ 3 ” i 7 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’ 4 ” j 8Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” 10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! k For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’ 5 ” l 11 Then the devil left him, m and angels came and attended him. n
