Temptation is one of the most common topics in the Bible. It’s mentioned over 100 times in the Old Testament and almost as many times in the New Testament. In general, the temptation is when a person is faced with an opportunity to do something they’re not supposed to do, but they want to because it’s tempting.
One of the most well-known temptations in the Bible is Jesus’ temptation by Satan in the desert. Satan tries to get Jesus to turn into a devil-like him, but Jesus resists. Another classic temptation is Eve’s in the Garden of Eden. Eve was tempted by the snake to eat the forbidden fruit. She did, and she and Adam were then banished from the Garden of Eden.
The two most common forms of temptation in the Bible are sexual temptation and financial temptation.
Bible Verses About Temptation
James 1:13-18 KJV
Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. Do not err, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
James 4:1-4 KJV
From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
