    A: Psalms 119
    Q: Which chapter is in the center of the Bible?

  • Q: What is the center verse in the Bible?
    A: Psalms 118:8

The next time someone says they would like to find God’s perfect will for their lives and that they want to be in the center of His will, just send them to the center of His Word!

Psalms 118:8 “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.” Now isn’t that odd how this worked out (or was God in the center of it)?


Neat trick to help one remember how many books are in the bible.

O L D T E S T A M E N T
3 letters in the word Old, 9 letters in word Testament
1 + 1+ 1 (space) 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1
(3) (9)
39 books in the Old Testament

N E W T E S T A M E N T
3 letters in the word New, 9 letters in word Testament
1+1+1 (X or cross separates) 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1
(3) X (9)
3 x 9 = 27 books in the New Testament

  • The first letter of the Greek word Christos is transliterated into our alphabet as an X.
    The X or Cross is what marks the New Testament different from the Old Testament.

39 + 27 = 66 books in total

More Fun Bible Facts & Trivia

  1. Of all the books in the Bible, the book of Esther never once mentioned the name of God.
  2. According to Genesis 1:20-22, the chicken came before the egg. So, now we can stop pondering which comes first, the chicken or the egg.
  3. Shakepeare was believed to be 46 when the King James version of the Bible was written. That is nothing to be awed about. However, the following fact might really make you wonder if it’s just a coincidence or a design on the part of the writers of the King James version. In Psalms 46, the 46th word from the first word is “shake” and the 46th word from the last word is “spear”. And put them together, you’ll get …:slight_smile:
  4. The Bible has been translated to Klingon. Klingon is a fictional tribe invented by the creators of Star Trek. Maybe they converted some Klingons to Christianity.
  5. The ten most mentioned animals in the Bible are sheep. lamb, lion, ox, ram, horse, bullock, ass, goat and camel.
  6. The shortest verse in the Bible? Jesus wept (John 11:35).
  7. Almonds and pistachios are the only nuts mentioned in the Bible.
  8. The oldest person mentioned in the Bible is Methuselah. He was 969 years old.
  9. The only miracle Jesus Christ performed that was mentioned in all the four Gospels is the feeding of the 5000.

The Great Flood, and the Prophecy of "Methuselah"

3 Likes

Thanks for the article Kevin. I have heard so many pastors say that Methuselah meant ‘His Death shall bring’ … and then some will insert the Flood.
They would also add on … ‘Can you imagine how careful everyone around him would be to make sure he lived a loooong life if they knew the flood would come when he died’. Hee Hee. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

The word “Unicorn” is mentioned in the KJV of the Bible!

Why? It was a mistranslation from the Greek Septuagint.

It’s most likely a Rhinoceros or wild Ox :blush:

@Kevo4Christ You are right in that his name does only appear once in the KJV at least. The name I am looking for is in the KJV but that isn’t the name I am looking for.

There may be a lot of good answers, I’m not really sure but when the answer I am looking for comes up, we will have a winner and I will try to let you all know, unless I happen to be away from the puter at the time.

Hint: He is a good guy and VERY WELL known.
