|Temptation of Jesus||Israel||Church||Us|
|Matthew 4:3 Stones to loaves (selfishness)||Grumbling in the desert (e.g. Exodus 16:3, 17:3)||Inward looking||Fleshly desires|
|Matthew 4:6 throw yourself down (forcing God's hand, testing God)||Ark sent into battle, asking to die at Rephidim (Exodus 17:7)||Miracles treated like magic tricks||Sensationalism|
|Matthew 4:9 worship me (paganism, idolatry)||Worshipping the Golden Calf (Exodus 32), Baals||Worldliness, compromise||Desire for power|
