Matthew 4:1-11

And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, saying “Far be it from you, Lord! This shall never happen to you.” But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me. For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.” Matt 16:22-23

“Put your sword back into its place. For all who take the sword will perish by the sword. Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then should the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must be so?” Matt 26:52-54

“He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the King of Israel; let him come down from the cross, and we will believe in him. He trusts God; let God deliver him now, if he desires him. For he said, ‘I am the Son of God.'” Matt 27:42-43
