Link ?????? What do you think ? I was just reading in Acts 1 today and the 3rd verse it says : After his suffering, he showed himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. Christ appeared to the apostles 40 times. Could there be a significance to the 40 days and linked to the 40 days that Christ spent praying and fasting. ?
