Occasions in The Bible Where Jesus Was Verily Beaten by Hunger And His Reactions

Hunger is a terrible thing. A popular saying says “an hungry man is an angry man” according to Psychiatrist Scientists, hunger has the ability to change the psychological reasoning of both man and animals into something negative. So therefore we are always advised not to take critical decision when ever we are hungry as it may lead to a regrettable result.

Esau sold his birthright to his younger brother Jacob just for a portage. He may not have done so in his normal senses but he was very hungry and lost his mind for that while and when he returned back to his fullness it was too late to recover from his mistakes

Two places Jesus was beaten by hunger and his responses

1: During the Feast of Passover in Jerusalem and at evening, fed up, Jesus turned on his heel and left the city for Bethany, where he spent the night. Early the next morning Jesus was returning to the city. He was hungry. Seeing a lone fig tree alongside the road, he approached it anticipating a breakfast of figs. When he got to the tree, there was nothing but fig leaves. He coursed the tree, "No more figs from this tree—ever!" The fig tree withered on the spot, a dry stick. The disciples saw it happen. They rubbed their eyes, saying, "Did we really see this? A leafy tree one minute, a dry stick the next?" (Matthew 21:17-20)

2: Jesus had forty days and forty nights. That left him, of course, in a state of extreme hunger, which the Devil took advantage of in the first test: "Since you are God's Son, speak the word that will turn these stones into loaves of bread."

Jesus answered by quoting Deuteronomy: "It takes more than bread to stay alive. It takes a steady stream of words from God's mouth."

For the second test the Devil took him to the Holy City. He sat him on top of the Temple and said, "Since you are God's Son, jump." The Devil goaded him by quoting Psalm 91: "He has placed you in the care of angels. They will catch you so that you won't so much as stub your toe on a stone."

Jesus countered with another citation from Deuteronomy: "Don't you dare test the Lord your God."

For the third test, the Devil took him to the peak of a huge mountain. He gestured expansively, pointing out all the earth's kingdoms, how glorious they all were. Then he said, "They're yours—lock, stock, and barrel. Just go down on your knees and worship me, and they're yours."

Jesus' refusal was curt: "Beat it, Satan!" He backed his rebuke with a third quotation from Deuteronomy: "Worship the Lord your God, and only him. Serve him with absolute single-heartedness."

The Test was over. The Devil left. And in his place, angels! Angels came and took care of Jesus' needs. (Matthew 4:1-11)

I know you have seen Jesus’ quite interesting reactions in those days when he was verily hungry like any other human being can be.
