Paradise Regained is an illustration of Milton's concern for the theological implications presented by Christ's dual role as God and man. Milton viewed the episode involving Satan's temptation of Christ as more instrumental in humanity's salvation than the passion narratives on the basis that it was during this episode that Jesus fully realized the Messianic identity, its role in humanity's salvation, and the course of action needed in order to fulfill that purpose.
