Matthew 4:2 And when He had fasted, (hungry for meaning in the scriptures) forty days and forty nights (of the years of his life: [see: Irenaeus who claims Jesus was older than 30], afterward He was hungry (for opportunity to apply, now, after his baptism by John, what he knew).

In his treaties Against Heresies, Book 2, Chapter 22, Irenaeus writes:

Now, that the first stage of early life embraces thirty years, and that this extends onwards to the fortieth year, every one will admit; but from the fortieth and fiftieth year a man begins to decline towards old age, which our Lord possessed while He still fulfilled the office of a Teacher, even as the Gospel and all the elders testify; those who were conversant in Asia with John, the disciple of the Lord, [affirming] that John conveyed to them that information. And he remained among them up to the times of Trajan. Some of them, moreover, saw not only John, but the other apostles also, and heard the very same account from them, and bear testimony as to the [validity of] the statement. Whom then should we rather believe? Whether such men as these, or Ptolemaeus, who never saw the apostles, and who never even in his dreams attained to the slightest trace of an apostle?
Irenaeus claims that John personally conveyed this information to "all the elders" who were conversant with him in Asia.



Matthew 4:
1 Then Jesus was led up (in his reflection upon the circumstances) by the Spirit (of his Good Conscious) into the wilderness (of deep contemplation) to be tempted by the devil (of his Intuition, [Meyers/Briggs Personality Type Psychic Factor "N"]).

2 And when He had fasted (from decision making) forty days and forty nights, (reflecting upon his "uncovery," this pearl of wisdom), afterward He was hungry (for opportunity to apply what he now knew).

3 Now when (his Animus, [N]), the tempter (of desies within him) came (in thought) to Him, he said, "If You are the Son of God (as you, yourself, Jesus, are now so convinced), command that these (five) stones (of Urim and Thummim: [Exodus 28:30]) become bread, (use their power to accumulate money)."

4 But He answered and said, "It is written, "Man shall not live by bread (from his labor) alone, but by, (in accord with), every word, (meaning, idea), that proceeds from the mouth of God (who lives in this inner kingdom of the mind within)."

5 Then, (in his abstract thought), the devil (within his psychic apparati, Intuition, [N]), took Him up (in his imagination) into the holy city (of Jerusalem), set Him (above all the most knowledgeable men in the priesthood), on the pinnacle of the temple (powers),

6 and said to Him, "If you are the Son of God, (if, indeed, "The Spirit of the Lord, [Immanent] GOD [within] is upon" you; "because the LORD, hath anointed" you "to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent" you "to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound:" [Isa. 61:1]), throw Yourself down (fearlessly, prove to yourself you are the chosen one to bring forth these good tidings). For it is written:

"He shall give His angels charge over you, and, In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone."'

7 Jesus said to him, (the psychological temptress of his Animus, [N], within his mind), "It is written again, 'You shall not tempt the LORD your God, (within, by allowing such psychic archetypal dominance, for this is the root of insanity)."

8 Again, the devil, (the Animus, [N], of his mind), took Him up, (in visions of misusing his newly acquired insights into scripture), on an exceedingly high mountain (of theological prominence), and showed Him all the (religious) kingdoms of the world and their (priesthoods, full with) glory (bestowed by their congregations.

9 And he said to Him, "All these things, (these theocracies and their massive congregations), I will give You if You will fall down (from the mission of disseminating this secret kabbalah to the common people), and worship me (in the selfish exploitation of what you now know)."

10 Then Jesus said to him, (this psychic archetypal impulse sourced in his Animus, [N]), "Away with (these thoughts of physical pleasure and Sensations, [S], possible with the material rewards) you (arouse in me, these Libidinal urges within), Satan, [S]," (which had been aroused in his mind)! "For it is written, 'You shall worship the LORD, (sanity), your God (within the kingdom of your mind), and Him only you shall serve."'

11 Then the devil, (his Animus, [N], the source of all intuitive thoughts and desires, all those possiblities of misappropriating the message that had been revealed which had been occuring to him), left Him, and behold, angels (of sanity) came and ministered to Him (with profound thoughts concerning the kingdom of theology).
