Did Ya Know?

Posted on

1.) The Bible has 66 Books, 1,189 chapters, 31,102 verses, 773,693 words, and 3,566,480 letters.

Again who counts these things?

 

2.) Esther 8:9 is the longest verse, while John 11:35 is the shortest

Esther 8:9- At once the royal secretaries were summoned—on the twenty-third day of the third month, the month of Sivan. They wrote out all Mordecai’s orders to the Jews, and to the satraps, governors and nobles of the 127 provinces stretching from India to Cush.[a] These orders were written in the script of each province and the language of each people and also to the Jews in their own script and language.

John 11:35-Jesus wept.

Yep, I believe it!

 

3.)The average person can read the Bible through in about seventy hours reading time. Reading three chapters per day and five on Sundays, you can read your Bible through in one year. About fourteen chapters per day will take you through in three months.

I don’t keep track I just read…but, god to know.

 

4.)The first people to ever see a rainbow were Noah and his sons.

Can you imagine what that might have been like?

 

5.)In the entire book of Esther, God is not mentioned once.

I thought this was cool when I heard it. Just because he isn’t mentioned doesn’t mean he isn’t there!
