“For three days,
He neither ate
καὶ ἦν ἡμέρας τρεῖς μὴ βλέπων, καὶ οὐκ ἔφαγεν οὐδὲ ἔπιεν.
The author of Acts indicated that for three days (καὶ ἦν ἡμέρας τρεῖς), Saul was without sight (μὴ βλέπων). He neither ate (καὶ οὐκ ἔφαγεν) nor drank (οὐδὲ ἔπιεν) anything. There was no mention of these three days of blindness and fasting in the later personal versions of this story by Saul in chapters 22 and 26. There may have been some symbolism tied to the blindness and fasting to the three days between the death and resurrection of Jesus. For three days, he could not see, eat, or drink. Were these his three days in the tomb? Have you ever fasted for three days?
