Chapter 4

5

Jesus allowed Himself to be tempted by the Devil. He didn't have to go where the Devil took Him, but he went nonetheless.

Hebrews 4:15 provides some insight into this.

For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.

Jesus allowed Himself to be tempted so that he can relate to our weaknesses.
