Keep Reading Your Bible

I've been reading the Bible for a long time, but it never ceases to amaze me how I continue to discover new facts. Or, to re-discover what I've forgotten.

For instance:
  • Did you know that when Jesus cleansed the Temple, he made a whip to do the job? See John 2:15
  • Did you know that after Lazarus was raised from the dead by Jesus, the Chief Priests plotted to kill Lazarus because his testimony was causing too many people to turn to Jesus? See John 12:10-11.
  • Did you know that some people were healed when handkerchiefs and aprons, touched the Apostle Paul, were laid upon them? See Acts 19:11-12.
  • Did you know that the Old Testament prophet Jeremiah was pulled out of the bottom of a well with a rope--with "worn out rags and old clothes" under his arms for support? See Jeremiah 38:12-13.
The Scriptures weren't given to make us trivia experts, but discovering its interesting details has made me reconsider the stories again and contemplate its timeless truths.

What interesting tid-bit are you seeing in the Word?
