The Bible Says Commentary on the Book of Matthew
Immediately following His baptism, Jesus is led by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness where He fasts for forty days and nights. At the end of His fasting, Jesus is tempted by the devil three times. Each time, He resists the devil. Jesus chooses to rely on God and His word, quoting Moses from the book of Deuteronomy to resist each temptation. Afterwards, Jesus briefly returns to His hometown in Nazareth before moving to the village of Capernaum on the shore of Galilee. There, He begins proclaiming the kingdom and miraculously healing people. Jesus calls four fisherman to be His disciples and crowds begin to seek Him out.
