temptations of jesus
The temptation of jesus is writen in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. According to these books, after being baptized, Jesus fasted for forty days and nights in the Judaean Desert. During this time, Satan appeared to Jesus and tried to encouraged him to turn a stone into bread in order to satisfy his hunger, but Jesus replied that scripture said man did not live on bread alone.
then satan showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and promised Jesus power and authority over them in return for worshipping him, but Christ replied that scripture said that one must worship the Lord God, and serve only him.
Then the devil tried to persuade Jesus to throw himself off the highest point of the temple so that angels would come to his rescue, but Jesus replied that one must not tempt God.

The Prodigal Son- look in book for story
In this parable the father in the story is just like God. This is how God would be if we ran away from him and we started doing things we shouldn't. He doesn't give up on us when we do things that are wrong, and he will always forgive us if we've truly changed and repent for what we've done.Now the older brother in this story just shows how most of us would act if this happened to us. I think we would all be upset if our younger brother or sister ran away for a long time and did a whole bunch of bad things and then came home and your parents threw a big party for him.The father who had been wronged, was forgiving. But the eldest son, who had not been wronged, was unforgiving. In this parable Jesus gives a clear picture of God and what God is like. God is truly kinder than us.
the good samaritan
a man got beaten up and was lying on the road. when a pope comes along, he won't touch dead bodies, then a rich man comes along he just ignores him then his enemy comes along and helps him up and pays for him to saty at a hotel. The moral is love your neighbour as you love yourself.
