Does God lead us into temptation?

Some have claimed that Matthew 6:13 implies that God may lead us into temptations, which is why Jesus is telling us to ask that God NOT do that: “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

However, James 1:13 says, “When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone.”

The claim is that these two verses show a contradiction in the teachings of the Bible.
