Echoes.                     Children and all adults who want to take part. Echoes need no script.

Voice.

The Holy Spirit led me out here to fast and pray for forty days.
Now I am very hungry. Oh! Here comes my adversary;
the one who disguises himself as an angel of light.
Ezekiel said he was perfect in beauty when he came to Eve
in the Garden of Eden! He is a master deceiver.

Prompter & Echoes.

Father of lies!

Devil .

Listen to me.
If you are the Son of God,
then tell these stones to become bread.

Voice .

It is written, “Man shall not live on bread alone,
but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.”

Devil .

Come now to Jerusalem the holy city, to the top of the great temple.
Ah! Here we are. Now, if you are the Son of God,
then throw yourself down; for it is written,
“He will command His angels concerning you,
and on their hands they will bear You up,
so that You will not strike Your foot against a stone.”

Voice .

It is also written, “You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.”

Prompter & Echoes.

Do not test God!

Devil .

Come with me to this high mountain.
You know I am the ruler of this world.
Look! See all the world’s kingdoms and their glory.
All this I will give you. Just fall down and worship me.

Voice.

It is written, “You shall worship the Lord your God,
and serve Him only.”

Prompter & Echoes .

Worship God alone!

Voice .

Satan leaves Me, for a while.
I am weak, but angels come to strengthen Me.
I begin to proclaim the good news to all who have ears to hear.
“Repent and believe.”

Prompter & Echoes .

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
