“Devil.” The Greek is literally “the Slanderer,” and we know him as “the Devil.”

[For more information on the Devil, see commentary on Matthew 4:1. For more information on the names of the Devil, see Appendix 14: “Names of the Devil.” For this temptation actually being the last of the three temptations and Luke 4 having the correct order of temptations, see commentary on Matthew 4:8, “showed him all the kingdoms.”]
