Although Satan is the one doing all the tempting, not God, nevertheless God allowed it and even lead Jesus to the place. This was done so that Jesus could pass the test that we never could.

He comes with authority to teach the truth, and to protect form all evil. How do we react to this authority? Do we rage against it like the demon? Do we live in jealousy like the scribes?

Yet the true miracle isn’t that He knew what Nathaniel was doing. The greater miracle is that He would open the way to heaven for sinners.
