That's my whole point. Jesus was tempted (a lot). Flawless people can't be tempted. The whole chapter would be a waste of ink and paper.
Hi BroT ,
remember when Jesus was tempted in the wilderness LED of the Holy Spirit .. what all was there with him in that wilderness Dunno if I understand you correctly but I think HS is not helping Jesus in any way. In fact HS causes trouble for Jesus.
the WILD BEASTS as well as the angels the wild beasts were what made him tempted to loose it with them done a massive study on them wild beasts , they were wicked hearted

How could Jesus be tempted in all points like us IF Jesus was never tempted ?
The verse says Jesus was tempted. The verse doesn't say satan tried to tempt Jesus but Jesus never felt temptation.
And that's why I gave you that link. Jesus had no help of HS at all. If I understand the 2 goats ritual correctly the HS left when Jesus was in the wilderness.

it was by satan / devil Mat 4:1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
Mar 1:13 And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan
; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
saw the High Priest Jesus being tempted by all points like us YET WITHOUT SIN ... this is what both describe
