Famous Fasts in History Jesus Christ

About the famous Biblical fast of Jesus Christ in the desert when he was tempted by the Devil.



Not long after his baptism by John, Jesus Christ was, according to Matthew, "led by the Spirit into the wilderness" (a mountain which edges the Jordan Valley and is today called by the Arabs the mount "of the 40 days"), and "when he had fasted 40 days and 40 nights, afterwards he was hungry" (again, according to Matthew). Then, in the first of three temptations, all of which Christ resisted, the devil came to him and said, "If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread." Jesus answered with the now famous words, "It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."
