After being baptized, the Holy Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness where he fasted for 40 days and was tempted by the devil. During this time Satan presented three great temptations to Jesus. In each instance, Jesus responded by drawing upon scripture to knock down each attack. From his intimate knowledge of the OT Jesus chose incidents from the wilderness wanderings of the Hebrews which were relevant and applicable to each temptation. This is exactly how we should battle our temptations, but like Jesus, we need a thorough knowledge and understanding of the Bible to be able to effectively wield the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.
