My best friend is Armenian. He told me a story a while back, and while I don't recall word for word, I'll do my best to reiterate:
The first country to become entirely Christian was Armenia. A long time ago, there was a man who was teaching Christianity. At the time, this was
heresy, so the king decided to punish this man by throwing him in a dungeon.
For forty days he was cast into the darkness, with no food or water. When the guards came to see his body, expecting him to be dead, they were
surprised. He was still Alive! They sent him to the king, and he asked, "How have you survived"? He said that he prayed to his Christian God, and
knew he would be well through his grace.
After seeing the power of this way, the king declared Christianity to be the national religion.
Does anyone know the validity to this story? I know it's not word for word, but that's what he told me basically some years ago. I found it
interesting that the days were 40, just like the flood.
