Add To Cart

Leeds based artist Si Smith has created 40 beautiful illustrations chronicling Jesus’ 40 day fast in the wilderness.

In the Gospels, Matthew, Mark and Luke either tell this story very briefly, or focus in on the detail of the temptation scene, which means that an impatient reader can easily skim over this story without considering just how long 40 days without food actually is! Simon’s pictures provide a way to slow down and meditate on just how long Jesus was fasting for, how he might have felt as he fasted, and what it meant for him to be tempted.
