    40 days: Genesis 50:2-3 And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father: and the physicians embalmed Israel. And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those which are embalmed: and the Egyptians mourned for him threescore and ten days. 40 days of death of Israel. Israel wanted Jesus to be their Messiah if Jesus would follow their rule.

    Disciple,I am sorry I have caused such an obvious upset in you. I do not seek wrath.
    My hope has been to enlighten people to the things that are not typically taught. It is a shock to have things brought to the forefront that are usually white washed and discounted at not important, or the things that many say "a loving God would not do that". God is who he says he is, and who can change him.
