Sandro Botticelli – "Temptations of Christ " (1480-82)


“After Jesus was baptized, he was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. He fasted forty days and forty nights, and afterwards he was famished…Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor; and he said to him, "All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me." Jesus said to him, "Away with you, Satan! for it is written,   ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him.’" Then the devil left him, and suddenly angels came and waited on him. " Matthew 4:1-2;8-11
