know his voice - Jesus' temptation

Today's Know His Voice readings deal with the accounts of Satan's temptation of Jesus: Mark 1:12-13; Matthew 4:1-11; Luke 4:1-13.

Of particular interest to me in these readings is how Scripture is quoted by both Satan and Jesus. There's a good discussion of that very matter in part two (of a two part series) of John Goldingay's article "The Old Testament and Christian Faith: Jesus and the Old Testament in Matthew 1-5". Scroll down about one-fourth or one-third of the page and come to the section on Matthew 4:1-11.
