Divorce Affair

Means and form of temptations

Jesus and his disciples came many times face to face with this type of temptation and ill-thought trial:

Matthew 16:1

“Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and tempting him asked that he would show them a sign from heaven.”

Matthew 19:3

“The Pharisees also came to him, tempting him, and saying to him, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just any reason?””

Matthew 22:18

“But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, “Why do you tempt me, you hypocrites?”

Matthew 22:35

”Then one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,”

Mark 8:11

“And the Pharisees came out, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.

Mark 10:2

“And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce [his] wife?” tempting him.”

Mark 12:13-15

“And they send to him some of the Pharisees and the Herodians, to catch him in his words. When they had come, they said to him, Master, we know that you are true, and care about no one; for you do not regard the person of men, but teach the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not? Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, Why do you tempt me? Bring me a denarius, that I may see it.”

Luke 11:15-16

“But some of them said, “He casts out demons by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.” And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven.”

John 8:3-6

“And the scribes and Pharisees brought to him a woman caught in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, they said to him, Master, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what do you say? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him.”
