15 Things You Might Not Know About the Bible


  1. Interesting facts, thanks for sharing!

  2. I always knew the Bible is the best seller ever, but I would have never thought it is the most shoplifted, too... It's just a weird feelin to put these two concepts together.

  3. Psalm 118:8 is not the center verse. I thought that was really cool when I first read it years ago, but it's false.

    On a side note, I LOVE your blog. Thankyou for sharing, and being a Titus 2 woman. We need more of you.

    1. Thanks, Rachel. I depended on the research of others, not my own. I just googled it and found a bunch of sites claiming Psalm 118:8 was the center verse, but also a few sites that made pretty good cases against the fact. So I'll remove that "fact" since it's probably not accurate. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.
      And thanks for the kind words about Bible Love Notes!
