taking him up

Luke 4:5

4:5 taking him up. The order of the second and third temptations, as given in Luke, is opposite to that recorded in Matthew. A comparison of the sequential conjunctions (“then” in Matthew, “and” in Luke) indicates that Matthew’s sequence is chronological, Luke’s is topical. This, in fact, is fairly evident throughout both gospels, and should be kept in mind in comparing their accounts of various events.
