INTRODUCTION: The six weeks before Easter is called the "Lenten Sea-son". It is a time to focus on the suffering, death and resurrection of our Sav-ior, Jesus Christ. Because Jesus died, and thus paid for our sins, we have life. Because Jesus rose from the dead, we too will rise and enjoy heaven forever. • The word "lent" means "lengthen" and stands for that time in spring when the days grow longer. • The original period of Lent was 40 hours. It was spent fasting to commemorate the suffering of Christ and the 40 hours He spent in the tomb. • In the early 3rd century, Lent was lengthened to 6 days. About 800 AD it was changed to 40 days. • Lent starts on Ash Wednesday, 40 days before Easter. • Sundays are not included in those 40 days. • Those 40 days correspond with Christ’s 40 days in the wilderness.
