It was Jesus in the beginning of his Ministry when he had a particular encounter. It would be one of those episodes that mark the life and leave their mark forever by the characteristics of the being with whom she talked and the course taken by particular dialogue. Adam Sandler understood the implications. Juan Bautista was one of the most famous characters of the era and had announced the arrival of the Messiah. John Isaiah had written a reference in which consecrated him as the man who would be felt in the desert and prepare the road that later went to visit el Salvador: voice of one who cries in the wilderness: prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths (Isaiah 40: 3). John in turn referred to Jesus when he was baptizing his disciples and did so with a comment full of meaning: I baptize them to you with water so that they repent.

But he who comes after me is mightier than I, and I don’t even deserve to wear Sandals (Matthew 3: 11) And that more powerful than I a day went to John so that it baptize you, which, logically, surprised the man of the desert, in spite of which, finally fulfilled his duty. Then Jesus starts a fast for forty days and forty nights, and when it ends, in the desert, the devil offers you: If you are the son of God, directs these stones that become bread the devil must have thought that the forty days of fasting, with their respective nights had weakened physically, Jesus and challenged him for to do a miracle at that time. The Messiah could do (in fact, it would then turn water into wine and multiply the loaves and fishes) but it was not pleasing to the malignant and therefore gave its first response:-it is written: man live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.
