The temptation of Jesus showed Satan's arrogance, but also Satan's awareness that Jesus had a truly human nature- admittedly a pre-fallen, perfect human nature- unlike our sinful nature. That's why Christians need to be careful about saying Jesus had a human body, but a Divine Spirit. This is indeed true, but it also must be remembered that Jesus' Divine Spirit upon His physical conception in the womb and entry into Mary's egg hypostatically projected a finite human version of Himself spiritually, which is hypostatically linked to His Divine Spirit- like an infinite sea producing within itself a finite bubble- this is a key aspect of the doctrine of the two natures of Christ. (Like how Jesus could heal a bleeding woman merely touching His prayer shawl and yet He could ask "Who touched me?" due to feeling Divine power go out from Him.) If we say ONLY that Jesus had a human body and a Divine Spirit, then that is the Monophysite heresy. The irony is that the Monophysites said Jesus was only God and not human, He merely inhabited a body. When Muhammad spoke with the Monophysites, he got confused and thought they were saying the opposite! (That He was only human!)

you can imagine up anything if it makes you feel better.
