Thanks for your reply,

A High priest should have an intimate understanding of the things he is making intercession for. To include being 'tempted' in the vessel of a man.

You and I are well acquainted with such things (being tempted, that is). But we are both loaded up with sin. Lots of it...

Where as He was/is not.

But what do you suppose the accuser of the brethren does day and night before The Almighty? Lots of scripture to show where the accuser 'tempted' the almighty. But He is/was not 'tempted' by such ongoing attempts/efforts.

So, we see a confirmation in James. He cannot be tempted by evil. Though some may try and try.

IMHO, accounting it is a matter of perspective. How one reads verses and applies them to all of scripture (context).

Those are my humble views.

God Bless.

A good study for this evening;

If God is not tempted, as some understand 'temptation', then who is being tempted in the following passages?

Exodus 17:7; Numbers 14:22; Deuteronomy 6:16; Psalm 78, 95, 106

God Bless.

Reread James 1:13 Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he Himself tempt anyone.

Ex. 17:7 is not speaking of evil....

Numbers22. that all the people who perceived My glory, and the signs that I performed in Egypt and in the desert, yet they have tested me these ten times and not listened to My voice,

Testing G_d is not tempting him with evil.

Deut 16. You shall not try the Lord, your God, as you tried Him in Massah....

Again, where is the evil?

Remember I'm using NT verse to dispute NT verses. I have said nothing about G_d saying not to try him in the Tanach.

Thanks for your reply,

If you could, would you please explain the difference (as you understand it in scripture) between 'testing' and 'tempting'. That may help others with semantics (as you understand them). Then we can look together for passages.


God Bless.

Testing: Trying, pushing to the limit.

Tempting: To entice to do wrong by promise of pleasure or gain
