“Again, the Devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. And he said to Him, “I will give You all these things if You will fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus told him, “Go away, Satan! For it is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve only Him.””

Matthew 4:8-10 HCSB


Of the three temptations, this is what seems to have upset Jesus. The other two He simply responded with scripture, but this temptation He not only responded with scripture, but also told the Devil to scram!

Note to self: If you want to get Jesus riled up – put other things ahead of His Father.
