10 More Things You May Not Have Known About the Bible

BibleSome time back I wrote a post about 10 Things You May Not Have Known About the Bible. Since I believe that there are always more things to learn, here are 10 more things you may not have known about the Bible.

  1. The feeding of the 5000 is the only miracle of Jesus that is found in all four Gospels.
  2. The command to love your neighbour as yourself is found six times in the Bible (once in Leviticus, twice by Jesus, twice by Paul and once by James).
  3. The death of John the Baptist is also found in Josephus (a first century Jewish historian).
  4. One of the Psalms appears twice in the book of Psalms (Psalms 14 and 53).
  5. The Sheol found in the Old Testament is the grave and not hell (as the KJV translates it).
  6. Paul never mentions his name Saul or his hometown of Tarsus in his letters.
  7. Many scholars see evidence of a female apostle in Romans 16:7.
  8. There is much overlap between 2 Peter and Jude.
  9. The twelve minor prophets in the Christian canon are one book (The Twelve) in the Hebrew canon.
  10. Malachi is the last book in the Christian Old Testament but 2 Chronicles is the last book in the Hebrew canon.
