    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:5

    Y le llev el diablo a un alto monte, y le mostr todos los reinos de la redondez de la tierra en un momento de tiempo.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 5. And the
    devil taking him up into an high mountain , etc.] Somewhere near Jerusalem, but what mountain is not certain. The Evangelist Luke makes this to be the second temptation, which, with Matthew, is the third and last; and whose order seems to be more proper and natural than this, and to be the true and genuine one, which Luke neglects, though he does not contradict it: he relates matters of fact, without attending to the strict order of them; whereas Matthew strictly regards it, observing, that after the first temptation, then the devil taketh him, etc. and that being finished, says, again the devil taketh him, etc. and upon those words, get thee hence, with what follows, remarks, that then the devil leaveth him: all which show, that his order is the most accurate, and to be followed. But to go on with the account; the devil having taken him from the pinnacle of the temple, and carried him to some high mountain, as Lebanon, or Pisgah, or some other near Jerusalem, showed unto him all the kingdoms of the world; not of the Roman empire only, though that consisted of many kingdoms, and is called the whole world, ( Luke 2:1) where the same word is used, as here; but of the whole universe, every kingdom that was under the heavens; which he represented to Christ, not in a map, since the glory of them could not be described in that way: for he showed him all the glory of them , as Matthew adds; and for this a mountain was no more a proper place, than any other; nor was, it any real object he presented to his bodily sight, or any real prospect he gave him of the kingdoms of the world, which are not to be seen from any one place, no not one of them, not even from the highest mountain in the world, and still less to be seen together at once in a moment: but this was a mere phantasm, a deception of the sight, with which he endeavoured to impose on Christ, but could not; nor did Christ; who is the maker of the world, and the governor among the nations, need any representation of the kingdoms of the world from him, (see Gill on Matthew 4:8) and this he did in a moment of time; in the twinkling of an eye, not by succession, and in process of time, as one kingdom after another, but all at once, and in an instant: what a moment of time is, (see Gill on Matthew 4:8).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-13 -
    Christ's being led into the wilderness gave an advantage to the tempter; for there he was alone, none were with him by whose prayer and advice he might be helped in the hour of temptation. He who kne his own strength might give Satan advantage; but we may not, who know our own weakness. Being in all things made like unto his brethren Jesus would, like the other children of God, live in dependence upo the Divine Providence and promise. The word of God is our sword, an faith in that word is our shield. God has many ways of providing for his people, and therefore is at all times to be depended upon in the way of duty. All Satan's promises are deceitful; and if he is permitte to have any influence in disposing of the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them, he uses them as baits to insnare men to destruction. We should reject at once and with abhorrence, every opportunity of sinfu gain or advancement, as a price offered for our souls; we should see riches, honours, and happiness in the worship and service of God only Christ will not worship Satan; nor, when he has the kingdoms of the world delivered to him by his Father, will he suffer any remains of the worship of the devil to continue in them. Satan also tempted Jesus to be his own murderer, by unfitting confidence in his Father' protection, such as he had no warrant for. Let not any abuse of Scripture by Satan or by men abate our esteem, or cause us to abando its use; but let us study it still, seek to know it, and seek ou defence from it in all kinds of assaults. Let this word dwell richly i us, for it is our life. Our victorious Redeemer conquered, not for himself only, but for us also. The devil ended all the temptation Christ let him try all his force, and defeated him. Satan saw it was to no purpose to attack Christ, who had nothing in him for his fiery dart to fasten upon. And if we resist the devil, he will flee from us. Ye he departed but till the season when he was again to be let loose upo Jesus, not as a tempter, to draw him to sin, and so to strike at his head, at which he now aimed and was wholly defeated in; but as persecutor, to bring Christ to suffer, and so to bruise his heel, whic it was told him, he should have to do, and would do, though it would be the breaking of his own head, Ge 3:15. Though Satan depart for season, we shall never be out of his reach till removed from thi present evil world.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    5. The
    world. See on chapter ii. 1.

    In a moment of time (en stigmh cronou). Peculiar to Luke. Stigmh is literally a mark made by a pointed instrument, a dot: hence a point of time. Only here in New Testament. Comapre stigmata, brand-marks, Gal. vi. 17. Tynd., in the twinkling of an eye.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:5 {The world} (tes oikoumenes). The inhabited world. In #Mt 4:8 it is tou kosmou. {In a moment of time} (en stigmei cronou). Only in Luke and the word stigme nowhere else in the N.T. (from stizw, to prick, or puncture), a point or dot. In Demosthenes, Aristotle, Plutarch. Like our "second" of time or tick of the clock. this panorama of all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them in a moment of time was mental, a great feat of the imagination (a mental satanic "movie" performance), but this fact in no way discredits the idea of the actual visible appearance of Satan also. this second temptation in Luke is the third in Matthew's order. Luke's order is geographical (wilderness, mountain, Jerusalem). Matthew's is climacteric (hunger, nervous dread, ambition). There is a climax in Luke's order also (sense, man, God). There is no way to tell the actual order.
