I am only talking about Jesus personally.
Did he not do only the Father's Will?

I can't find one time he personally tested anyone.

There are verses in the letters speaking of tests, yes,
so any quoting of those would not matter,
nor the many verses in the Old Testament.
Why?
Because they are not about Jesus personally testing anyone.
Did I miss any?
Thanks

Are we talking multiple choice, or essay?

Haha, no essay....just point to a time he tested someone while alive walking this earth.
That is testing their faith...not tempting them to do wrong...but a person could point out one of those,
also, if there was a spot.
I don't see any.

Jesus tested (put to the test) the young rich ruler (Matt. 19:16-22; Mark 10:17-22; Luke 18:24) in the sense that he caused the young man to self-examine how much he was willing to give up to follow Jesus.

Just before he raised Lazarus, Jesus asked Martha if she believed that he was the resurrection and the life (John 11:25-26). To which she replied, ''Yes Lord.'' I suppose you could consider that a test.

Well, “test” conjures up a pass/fail image to anyone coming out of the traditional school system I think, rather than an opportunity to bring clarity. If Jesus tested people, hopefully it was for the latter purpose.

He asked the young man why he called him "good". Because only God is good.

Having said that, it was Jesus testing Abraham when he commanded him to sacrifice Isaac.

For instance, the story of Jesus inviting Peter to walk on water might be looked at by some as a test. (For the record, I tend to see the whole Jesus narrative as spiritual allegory.) Whereas I would see it as a teaching moment.

More a question than a test was it not?

A test would be like here is one choice do you take it when you know you really shouldn't....like being on a no sugar fast and there are a few dozen of your favorite doughnuts in the break room and they tell you they will just be thrown out if you do not take them home.

You were never asked a question during a test in school?
