 Bible Facts Posted on 10-3-2004
WOTR News Article Here are some interesting Bible facts for you to enjoy:

Shortest Chapter in the Bible: Psalm 117
Longest Chapter: Psalm 119
Center Chapter: Psalm 118

That's neat how the middle chapter is wedged in between the shortest and longest chapters!

There are 594 chapters before Psalms 118 > Fact: There are 594 chapters after Psalms 118 > Add these numbers up and you get 1188. In addition, Psalm 118:8 is the center verse in the Bible!! What does it say? "It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man." Well, that pretty much sums it up, don't you think? Also, "the LORD" are the two middle words in that verse. God is the center of the Bible in more ways than one!

The longest chapter, Psalm 119, contains 176 verses. The number "176" just happens to be 16x11. The famous Kings James Version that is the standard we know and love today was printed in 1611! And the Word of God is a main theme of Psalm 119.

In 1452, Johannes Gutenberg, inventor of the printing press, printed the very the very first book: the Bible. Life Magazine called this the single most important event of the second millennium.

Ingersoll, that Famous skeptic, said, "Ten years from today and the Bible will be a dead book." Ingersoll died 8 years later. The Book lives on.

"In 100 years, the Bible will only be found in a museum." Voltaire said that over 150 years ago, but thousands of Bibles are still being produced on a daily basis. The grass withers, the flower fades, but God's Word remains forever.
Isaiah 40:8 - 1 Peter 1:22-25

"Men do not reject the Bible because it contradicts itself, but because it contradicts them." Author Unknown

Here are a couple other amazing facts I found:

About 50 Bibles are sold every minute!!

The first ever vocal radio broadcast took place on December 24, 1906
which consisted of a reading from Luke 2.

Have you ever heard of Isaiah referred to as "The Gospel Prophet"? Here are some more reasons why that is a good title for him:

**Bible: 66 books.
**Isaiah: 66 chapters.

**Bible: First 39 books mainly concern Israel.
