[mpoverlay]Here’s the top seven facts about the Bible.
1) About 50 Bibles are sold every minute
2) The Bible was written in three languages: Hebrew, Aramaic and Koine Greek.
3) Dogs are mentioned 14 times in the Bible and lions 55 times, but domestic cats are not mentioned at all.
4) Now that’s irony: The Bible, the world’s best-selling book, is also the world’s most shoplifted book.
5) Esther is the only book in the Bible that does not contain the word “God.”
6) The raven is the first bird mentioned in the Bible. It was sent out by Noah to see if the waters had abated after the great flood.
7) The verse is the exact middle of the Bible is Psalm 118:8. There are 549 chapters before Psalm 118, and 549 chapters after Psalm 118 – making the total number of chapters 1188.[/mpoverlay]

#8) It was written by superstitious Bronze Age goat herders, and has absolutely zero relevance in this day and age.
it is more relevant now than it has ever been…
yeah,but why is it following me from hotel to hotel?
And even though a bible exists in a majority of homes people still act selfish, thoughtless, self-centered,materialistic, self-absorbed, and many of whom would lie, cheat, steal, deceive or whatever if it benefited themselves,
Your mathematics is wrong. 549 + 549 is not equal to 1188, i.e, you have eaten 90 chapters. Even Einstein would have to be a nut to believe you.
Hello 4565! I believe there was a typo above: there are 594 chapters before and 594 after Psalm 118, which gives a total of 1188.
And guess what is the verse in the middle of the Bible? It is the verse 8 of the same Psalm which says "It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans."
Best wishes 😉
on the maths comments; 549 before and after Psalm 118 would make a total of 1099! (549+549+1=1099)
My advice would be to read it!
I first viewed this web site today..08-03-12 and appreciate the information shown here and look forward to viewing it often. It is bad math with the above man caught right off…now he was not too kind in his remarks but just because he is on line here may show he is seeking the truth. I pray that he may find it….soon…salamat from Mindanao! daniel
The bible is the most amazing book one could ever read , it is completely relevant to this day and age, and it shows Gods unfailing love for human kind. He gave us his only son Jesus Christ so that we would have eternal life through him and be in fellowship with the one true God.
No, it is not.
good but some information are not so acute.
