Why did Jesus fast for 40 days in the desert?
Did you ever wonder why the solemn season of Lent is 40 days long? Jesus fasted for 40 days and nights and so do we, but this still leaves the question: why 40? Each time Jesus responds to the devil, he replies with Scripture. The number 40 does come up in Deuteronomy in some pretty significant ways. For example, Moses twice fasts for 40 days.
Sign in. The star of the Netflix film Secret Obsession fits right into the world of thrillers, thanks to her love of the genre. Watch now. Title: 40 Days and 40 Nights
The film depicts Matt Sullivan, a San Francisco web designer who has chosen to abstain from any sexual contact for the duration of Lent. Matt is obsessed with his ex-girlfriend, Nicole Vinessa Shaw , and his obsession repeatedly causes him problems during attempted one-night stands. He has trouble moving on, since Nicole broke up with him. He confides his sexual problems to his brother, John Adam Trese , who is training to become a Catholic priest.
