  1. Ans: There are many references in Scripture to 40 days. Some more closely resembling a Lenten preparation than others. The three I had in mind are: (1) the 40 days Moses spent on Mt. Sinai in preparation to receive the Ten Commandments – Ex 34:28; (2) the 40 days when the Prophet Elijah walked to the Lord’s Mountain, Mt. Horeb- 1 Kings 19:8; and (3) the 40 days spent by Jesus in the desert preparing for his ministry – Mt 4:2.

    Check back this evening for another question.
