Ordinarily, however, the word means solicitation to that which is evil, and hence Satan is called "the tempter" (Matthew 4:3). Our Lord was in this way tempted in the wilderness. That temptation was not internal, but by a real, active, subtle being. It was not self-sought. It was submitted to as an act of obedience on his part. "Christ was led, driven. An unseen personal force bore him a certain violence is implied in the words" (Matthew 4:1-11). ________________________________________

So far as the Jerusalem community was concerned, the common meal appears to have sprung out of the koinonia or communion that characterized the first days of the Christian church (compareActs 1:14Acts 2:1 etc.). The religious meals familiar to Jews-the Passover being the great type-would make it natural In Jerusalem to give expression by means of table fellowship to the sense of brotherhood, and the community of goods practiced by the infant church (Acts 2:44;Acts 4:32) would readily take the particular form of a common table at which the wants of the poor were supplied out of the abundance of the rich (Acts 6:1). The presence of the Agape in the Greek church of Corinth was no doubt due to the initiative of Paul, who would hand on the observances associated with the Lord's Supper just as he had received them from the earlier disciples; but participation in a social meal would commend itself very easily to men familiar with the common meals that formed a regular part of the procedure at meetings of those religious clubs and associations which were so numerous at that time throughout the Greek-Roman world.


Unction—1. (n.) The act of anointing, especially for medical purposes, or as a symbol of consecration; as, mercurial unction.2. (n.) That which is used for anointing; an unguent; an ointment; hence, anything soothing or lenitive.3. (n.) Divine or sanctifying grace.4. (n.) That quality in language, address, or the like, which excites emotion; especially, strong devotion; religious fervor and tenderness; sometimes, a simulated, factitious, or unnatural fervor 



Tempter—One who tempts or entices; especially, Satan, or the Devil, regarded as the great enticer to evil.

_Deceit—1. (n.) An attempt to deceive or lead into error; a falsehood; any declaration, artifice, or practice, which misleads another, or causes him to believe what is false; a contrivance to entrap; deception; a wily device; fraud.

2. (n.) Any trick, collusion, contrivance, false representation, or underhand practice, used to defraud another. When injury is thereby effected, an action of deceit, as it called, lies for compensation.

_Sin—(1.) From the fact of the universal sinfulness of men. "There is no man that sinneth not" (1 Kings 8:46Isaiah 53:6;Psalm 130:3Romans 3:19, 22, 23;Galatians 3:22).(2.) From the total depravity of man. All men are declared to be destitute of any principle of spiritual life; man's apostasy from God is total and complete (Job 15:14-16; Genesis 6:5, 6).(3.) From its early manifestation (Psalm 58:3Proverbs 22:15).(4.) It is proved also from the necessity, absolutely and universally, of regeneration (John 3:32 Corinthians 5:17).(5.) From the universality of death (Romans 5:12-2Is "any want of conformity unto or transgression of the law of God" (1 John 3:4Romans 4:15), in the inward state and habit of the soul, as well as in the outward conduct of the life, whether by omission or commission (Romans 6:12-17; 7:5-24). It is "not a mere violation of the law of our constitution, nor of the system of things, but an offence against a personal lawgiver and moral governor who vindicates his law with penalties. The soul that sins is always conscious that his sin is (1) intrinsically vile and polluting, and (2) that it justly deserves punishment, and calls down the righteous wrath of God. Hence sin carries with it two inalienable characters, (1) ill-desert, guilt (reatus); and (2) pollution (macula) 0).
