4:3: Satan is Challenging the relationship Yeshua' has with His Father in heaven: "If You are the Son of God" which is calling into question the Father's declaration at Christ's Baptism see (Matthew 3:17): Satan is wanting Yehsua to act independently from His Father in heaven, see (John 5:30): Yeshua can do nothing Himself apart from His Father, see my commentary for full rundown!!!
4:4: Rejecting the first temptation, Yeshua is rejecting an earthly kingdom teaching us not to pursue earthly comfort which perishes, see (John 6:27): Adam disregarded the divine Word so he could pursue passions of the body see (Genesis 3), Christ is seen as the new Adam who conquers all temptation by the divine word, giving humans the power to do the same!!!
