Today’s Crazy Bible verse takes us away from the book of Judges and into the New Testament.
“After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry.” – Matthew 4:2
This refers to Jesus being taken into the wilderness and fasting for forty days and forty nights. Does a fast mean without food AND water? If so, this is impossible. You are dead within a few days without water. So no, Jesus did not fast for forty days and nights without water. If it simply means food, it is possible to survive this long, but the body is severely malnourished at this point and at the point of death. How is Jesus doing in the Bible? He’s simply hungry. That’s it. Intense hunger can set in within a day for those who are currently eating a healthy number of calories per day. At forty days Jesus is quite possibly dead! Not the Jesus in the Bible. Aside from a bit of hunger, he’s doing just fine and walks away with no assistance. Nope, science tells us this can’t happen and this story is a fraud.
