Sad: List Of People That Challenged Jesus Christ On Long And Dry 40 Days Fasting But Some Died

Fasting is the willful refrainment from eating and sometimes drinking. From a purely physiological context. Many people fast to get favor from their creator and even get the chance to communicate well with their Lord Almighty but these set of people went too far in challenging the Jesus Christ in his 40 days 40 nights fast.

Today, Lent is connected with the 40-day fast that Jesus undergoes (Mark 1:13; Matthew 4:1–11; Luke 4:1–13). Mark tells us that Jesus was tempted by Satan, but it is in Matthew and Luke that the details of the temptation are fleshed out. All three accounts say that Jesus went without food for the 40 days. Now let's go straight to these set of people who went extra miles just to compete with Jesus but some couldn't made it alive.

These people had their personal reasons to which they decided to embark on the dry fasting. Now let's check them out;
