"In all points tempted"

How comforting and reassuring to many it is to read in the Bible that our Way-shower, Christ Jesus, was "in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin."

Before she had studied Christian Science, Jesus' experience in the wilderness when he was tempted of the devil, meant little to the writer, particularly as the only concept of the devil which she had ever pictured was of the "horned and cloven-hoofed" variety. She therefore dismissed the temptations in the wilderness as possibly a fantastic allegory beyond her comprehension. However, when some of the definitions of the words contained in the account of this experience of Jesus were studied, as given in the Glossary in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, the story of the three temptations became to her a very precious one, having a distinct application to her own experiences.
