Will worship me,
It will all be yours.’”
σὺ οὖν ἐὰν προσκυνήσῃς ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ, ἔσται σοῦ πᾶσα.
Here then is the kicker. The devil thought that he controlled the whole world. He asked Jesus to worship him (σὺ οὖν ἐὰν προσκυνήσῃς ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ). If Jesus did that, then the devil would give Jesus all these kingdoms (ἔσται σοῦ πᾶσα). This is much the same as Matthew, chapter 4:9. For many Christians, this seemed like a stupid temptation, since God, the Father and his Son, already controlled the world. Why would Jesus worship the devil? That made no sense.
Will be great.
He will be called
Of the Most High.
The Lord God
Will give him
Of his ancestor
οὗτος ἔσται μέγας καὶ Υἱὸς Ὑψίστου κληθήσεται, καὶ δώσει αὐτῷ Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς τὸν θρόνον Δαυεὶδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ,
Now comes the kicker. This child Jesus would be special, really special. Luke said that the Angel Gabriel told Mary that her child Jesus would be great (οὗτος ἔσται μέγας). He would be called the Son of the Most High (καὶ Υἱὸς Ὑψίστου κληθήσεται). The Lord God (Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς) will give him (καὶ δώσει αὐτῷ) the throne of his ancestor David (τὸν θρόνον Δαυεὶδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ). This Most High indicated Elohim, one the Hebrew titles for God. Jesus would have the Davidic throne because Joseph was a descendant of David. This was really great news.
