The source for the Grand Inquisitor's view is found in St. Luke, 4:1–13: And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the  wilderness, Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were  ended, he afterward hungered. And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every  word of God. And the devil, taking him up into a high mountain, showed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a  moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered  unto me; and to whomsoever I will, I give it.

And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
