Every accountable person on earth is tempted. Even the Savior was tempted. But was He capable of sinning? President Howard W. Hunter (1907–95) taught: “Had there been no possibility of his yielding to the enticement of Satan, there would have been no real test, no genuine victory in the result. … He was perfect and sinless, not because he had to be, but rather because he clearly and determinedly wanted to be”.

One of the best talks on the Three Temptations of Christ was given by Howard W Hunter in the October 1976 General Conference, titled "The Temptations of Christ".
