Description: A spirit leads Jesus into the wilderness where Satan tempts him in three different ways. In the foreground Satan tries to convince Jesus to break his fast by turning a stone into a loaf of bread. In the background Satan leads Jesus to the top of a tall building and asks him to cast himself downward. Jesus then follows Satan to the peak of a mountain where Satan reveals to him all the kingdoms of the world. The engraver's knife and monogram (CE) are placed in the lower right and the 4-cross in the center.
