In Matthew 4: 1-11 Jesus was tempted in the wilderness. What is the source for the Apostle Matthew claiming the devil had a conversation with Jesus? Was it a dream? Revelation? Someone else who told Mathew? Was anyone else present with Jesus? Or did Jesus relay the conversation he had with the devil and if so, to whom and when? Thank you and God bless.
