People's Bible Notes for Matthew 4:11


Mt 4:11 Then the devil leaveth him. Luke adds, "for a season" (Lu 4:13). When the devil is resisted he always flees. Angels came and ministered to him. I suppose this ministry was to supply him with food, but they also would afford spiritual sympathy.

    Many times people are born into the Kingdom of God and are asked to be witnesses and lead people to Jesus. What is to be understood is effective witnessing has to be taught. Jesus told his disciples to follow him, and that he would "make" them fishers of men.
