temtpting the Son of God
Why would satan even try to tempt Jesus. He knew who he was. Was he going to trick God?

Jesus took only the Words of God for Forty Days.
Jesus as Son of God obeyed God`s word.Therefore,he said that you must not put the Lord your God to the test.And he was free from the lust for the greatest power.because he worshiped the Lord your God,and served him alone.

Also on Gospel Mt 5:17-19 belated reflections
The two all encompassing laws Love God above all else and love your neighbours as you love yourself. We were created in God`s image and how does Jesus fullfill the Law? sacrificing himself for love for us. But not only. Having all of us in front of his eyes on that cross obeying to the Father. As clear as those 10 Commandments. He is not entrapped in the legalistic trappings that only think of the external comformity to the Law or let that override the awareness that we are in reality adhering to the Spirit ''wrongly afraid that we are falling short of something'' and that make us slaves and confused by the tangles of scrupolosity which risks make us trip on the path ''how often do we think too much and see sinfulness where there isn`t...becoming unsure and afraid of not being able to win over real temptaions not trusting enough in the Lord`s constant presence His love constantly feeding us...:''''. His soul is serene in the battle and does not give in to the demons tempting him the night before the suffering. He is rooted in Love and obeyance. Jesus...the humble&firm banner of victory. The icon is a hymn of triumph. a showing forth, a memorial inscribed for those who have fought and conquered, humbling the demons and putting them to flight. John of Damascus ''675-749'' Conform to Jesus...Jesus brought up by Mary... In the book, Calls from the Message of Fatima, in chapter 13, entitled The Call to devotion to the Immaculate Heart, Sister Lucia wrote: To establish in the world devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary means to bring people to a full consecration through conversion, self-dedication, intimate esteem, veneration and love. Thus it is in this spirit of consecration and conversion that God wishes to establish in the world devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary ''p.133''

Why was it important for Jesus to go through a time of temptation?
To set us an example that noone is exempt from temptations. That the Lord is always with us and that we can win over everything with His help being rooted in Him with that serenity and peace of mind that comes from Faith and an earnest desire to stick to Him. Being firmly calmly and steadily rooted in his Word, the devil has no power on us. We can easily deflect his envious blows with firmness. And the closer to the Lord the harder the envious blows...but the Lord is with us His beloved children entrusted to the protective mantel of Mary ''one of those two hymns said that the rejoicing smily eyes reflect the blue of the clear skies''.

Why was it important for Jesus to go through a time of temptation?
It was important for Jesus to be tempted so we could learn from His responses to Satan. He turned to God`s written Word in each of the times He spoke to Satan and this tells me of the awesome power of God`s Word. This is why is it so very important that we study and memorize our Bible so that we may make the most use of this valuable shield God has provided for us.

The Temptation of Jesus

Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. When he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was hungry afterward. The tempter came and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread."
But he answered, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.'"
Then the devil took him into the holy city. He set him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to him, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written, 'He will give his angels charge concerning you.' and,
'On their hands they will bear you up,
so that you don't dash your foot against a stone.'"
Jesus said to him, "Again, it is written, 'You shall not test the Lord, your God.'"
Again, the devil took him to an exceedingly high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory. He said to him, "I will give you all of these things, if you will fall down and worship me."
Then Jesus said to him, "Get behind me, Satan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.'"
Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and served him.
