imageSearch within the History site using just ‘Jesus’ as countless people will this season of Lent. The results page points to a forthcoming DVD in History’s store that will be available June 1, 2011. It is called Jesus: The Lost 40 Days.

Here is the description:

According to the Bible, Jesus Christ spent 40 days on Earth after his Resurrection on that first Easter Sunday before ascending to Heaven. Astonishingly, the New Testament is practically silent on what happened during this period. Why are only a few scattered paragraphs devoted to perhaps the central, most defining and miraculous event in Christianity? And most importantly, what did Jesus do and say during those incredible 40 days?

JESUS: THE LOST 40 DAYS is a new investigation into history’s rare, long-buried non-Biblical sources to seek and fill in this missing time period. The Gospel of Thomas, the Gnostic Gospels, the writings of the Jewish historian Josephus, and the Gospel of Nicodemus are among the alternate, historical sources that yield astonishing information and detail about Jesus’ lost 40 days.
