I Would Only Follow a God Who Was Tempted

Propounds the theory that Jesus was actually tempted by a hallucination of Satan—in other words, his own food- and water-deprived brain. Before anyone flips out:

Are you saying this wasn’t real? No. The temptation that Jesus experienced was definitely real. Are you saying the bible isn’t true? No. I definitely believe the bible—I’m just trying to figure out what Matthew meant here, based on what else I know about God and temptation and what makes sense.

I don’t know that I agree, but I appreciate people who bring their imaginations with them when then they talk about the Bible.
