Numbers and the Bible

(Continued)

MOORE —

No. 40: The Israelites wondered in the wilderness 40 years.  Moses was on Mt. Sinai for 40 days. 300 years later, Elijah spent 40 days on the same mountain worshiping God. In the days of the Noah’s flood, it rained for 40 days and 40 nights.  Jesus fasted for 40 days in the wilderness. Jesus remained on the earth 40 days after his resurrection. 

These are just a few of the significant numbers in the Bible. With a little research, you’ll find plenty more. Happy reading.
