Jesus clearly knows who he is and what has been set before him to accomplish, this test is not to prove something more to himself, this test is for our benefit to prove to us that he is divine and sinless. From this fact we must assume that Satan's intention here as well was/is towards our misunderstanding of the scriptures that he is quoting.
I can't imagine the horror of being dead set against Jesus, determining to forcably cast him out and he supernaturally escapes your grip. Especially after the obvious conjunctions to his historical points about Ellias.
