    Lent’s Roots
    Lent is derived from the word lencten, which is Anglo-Saxon for springtime. It lasts for 40 days from Ash Wednesday to the Holy Triduum. Next to the number 7, the number 40 occurs most frequently in the Bible. It represents a period of testing or judgment. Lent's duration of 40 days reflects other times of trial, testing and hardship found in the Scriptures:
    • There were 40 days of rain while Noah and the animals were on the arc.
    • Moses and Elijah fasted for 40 days before beginning their missions. 
    • The Hebrews wandered for 40 years in the desert after leaving Egypt.
    • It took the spies 40 days to search out the Promised Land and bring back fruit. 
    • Goliath taunted the Israelite army in the morning and evening for 40 days. 
    • Jonah warned the Ninevites that they had 40 days until God would overthrow the city. 
    • Jesus fasted and prayed in the desert for 40 days before beginning his ministry.
