Storyline

"40 Nights" is the first of the QUEST TRILOGY - films sharing alike themes of sacrifice and faith. These films focus on less known events from the biblical age. The first film examines the pre-ministry life of Jesus (DJ Perry) starting with his baptism with John the Baptist (Terry Jernigan). From there Jesus embarks on his self- exploration journey into the wilderness for 40 nights. He is tempted by the Devil thrice in various forms. Audiences will be treated to a stronger portrayal of Jesus that peeks at his childhood and family upbringing. The result is a Jesus that invokes empathy and sheds light on the true magnitude of his sacrifice for mankind. Written by CDI

Temptation Isn't Pettiness And Annoyance Alone
27 July 2019 | by Desertman84See all my reviews

"Forty Nights" is a story about the start of the public life of Jesus from receiving his baptism from John The Baptist until he goes into the wilderness for 40 days and 40 nights for self-exploration as well as how he fights the temptation from the devil. The movie stars DJ Perry, Rance Howard and Taymour Ghazi.

It was obvious the movie has taken creative liberties in telling these major events in Jesus' life. This will definitely not be received very well especially by the Protestants who wants everything to be taken everything accurately from the Bible. Added to that,it presents themes of sacrifice,love, and resistance from the devil. These were shown pretty well in the movie. Finally,we also get to see good performances from the cast.

What made it somewhat disturbing in the movie is the pettiness shown by Satan in this movie.I personally believe that Satan's temptations to people is not just trying to be annoying and petty in convincing them to commit sin. It would have been better had it made Satan a convincing tempter and a major distraction to one's life to commit sin instead of pettiness and annoyance alone.
