This question already has an answer here:
- Why pray, “lead us not into temptation”? 6 answers
Matthew 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
What does into mean in this verse?
This prayer seems to me like God by default leads us into temptation and Jesus is asking us to pray that God would repent of His default behavior.
But another verse says just the opposite.
James 1:13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one.
So inorder to reconcile these two verses I think the meaning of "into" is important.
