‘The Devil can cite Scripture for his purpose,’ Shakespeare wrote. What think ye?

Pastor Betty Hanna-Witherspoon, Ebenezer Church, Kansas City, Mo.: This quotation may be built on Jesus’ encounter with Satan as found in Matthew 4:1-11 and Luke 4:1-12. In these passages, Satan uses Scripture to lure Jesus into exercising pride and pursuing fame and power. Jesus turns aside Satan’s use of Scripture to tempt him into demonstrations of his greatness with quotes from other passages. These passages counter Satan’s arguments that would lure him away from his ministry/calling.
