Amazing Facts about the Bible
Posted by Ronald Mapamula on 4/30/2014

The world over, there is no mistaking to the fact of how great an impact The Bible has. An impact that covers all human societies and facets of life. From being a leading source of Counsel (on a broad spectrum of everyday issues); a cause for religious and political contentions; to being a historical authority, to being the inspiration behind the writing of many a number of books, to its use as a commercial product. Great organizations have been built around it and so has many organisations against it, many great historical events have been incited by it (The Dark Ages, The Crusaders) and the gravity of its influence is certain to be felt in ages far beyond ours. Despite its age it is still powering a great many dialogues to this day.

Considering the apparent magnitude of The Bible's weight on societies, not much is known about it. Now, by virtue missions organisations (Watchtower.og, Gideon's international etc) many households and persons own a Bible, it seems to be a commonplace phenomenon. It seems now to be a mystery set in the open, with no more flair and no longer prompting awe. There are some amazing facts worth knowing about the bible.
Wondering what these are, we'll here they are!

1. It was written over a period of 1600 years. To bring things to perspective, just 300 years ago Africa didn't need to fight for independence, for it was still to be 'discovered'. It would need 200 years to invent the needle let alone the automobile or the telephone ( let's not mention the internet or computers)

2. About 50 bibles are sold every minute. I bet you're smart, you can do the math for how many are sold in a year or since you were born.

3. 168 000 bibles are sold/donated each day in the U.S.A (fancy doing the Math again?)

4. Ironically, being the World's bestselling book ever, it is also the most shoplifted too. Now that's interesting isn't it?

5. The Catholic Church charged with death by hanging, anyone who had a non-Latin bible.

6. So strong was this gesture that when Wycliffe made the First know English translation of the bible, the infuriated Pope (44 years after Wycliffe's death) ordered that his bones be exhumed, crushed and the powder scattered into the river.

7. The original bible text had no Chaptes and Verses.

  • Chapters were introduced by Cardinal Hugo de S Caro in AD.1238
  • Verses were introduced by Sir Robertus Stephanus in AD. 1551

8. The KJV also known as The Authorised Version (considered the most accurate translation of the Bible) was the 7th translation and it took 7 years to translate.

9. Though there are many religious writings The Bible is the only one that claims to be the Word of God in verbatim words. The phrase "thus saith The Lord" (which supposedly precedes the actual words of God) appears over 3000 times in the Bible.

10. The Bible is the most translated writing, having been  translated into 2018 languages to this date.

11. “The Bible is the only book that states how the world came to be, the birth of man, the journey of man’s life to the present time, and even what is going to happen in the future.”

 

12: There are over 100 scientific discoveries that prove the Bible’s scientific accuracy. Read more here!

Doctors have many challenges to face as they are perennially surrounded by patients, diseases, hospital duties and over-extended or odd shift timings. Universally, doctor is considered to be a noble profession and respectable one at that, but a doctor also has to work under immense pressures, emotional strains and other physical challenges. A regular physician like most of us at some point face will have to deal with personal situations such as important family affairs, family holidays, sickness or pregnancy that may force them to abandon medical duties. At the same time, a hospital or a healthcare facility is also constantly faced with emergency situations that demand all hands on deck round-the-clock. Therefore, every hospital, clinic or nursing home is compelled to hire locum tenens or substitute doctor in order to keep the staffing under control at all times. In fact, locum doctors are the most valuable asset for the medical community because they provide quality medical care and act as a helping-hand in emergency situations when the medical facilities need them the most. Unlike regular or permanent doctors, locum doctor jobs are also ideal career options for medical interns and graduates because they offer a wide array of medical exposure in varied medical specialties, work cultures and healthcare systems. Locum jobs are challenging and flexible, thus an increasing number of medical professionals have benefitted from these jobs, so whether one is looking for a family physicians position or in a hospital or in a clinic, locum jobs for doctors are available at all levels and in different healthcare systems. In addition, being a locum doctor gives a medical professional the control over their working hours, location of work and choice of area of specialisation. Technically, locum positions are not restricted to general physicians but they are also extended to other fields of medical specialisations such as cardiology, neurology and many more. Travelling can be an integral part of locum jobs, and these distinctive features are a boon for many dedicated medical professionals who are eager to expand their medical careers with loads of multi-cultural medical experiences. The fact that locum agencies in the UK recruit tens of thousands of locums from across the globe in various NHS hospitals, private clinics, nursing homes and other public hospitals speaks volume of the popularity of locum jobs. Locating or getting a locum tenens job is a simple task as long as you are registered with one of the many reputable locum agencies. These agencies act as the middle man between locum tenens and medical facilities, and they also look after all the details pertaining to travel for locum tenens, accommodation and the nature of locum work. Thus, maintaining a healthy locum doctor-agency relationship benefits both the parties, and it also increases the probability of getting recommendable employment opportunities and businesses or vice-versa.

Trying To Find The Best Diet Pill? Trying to find the best diet pill may seem like an impossible task, especially with the multitude of diet pills available for purchase. Many people purchase a diet pill only to find out that the pill makes them feel jittery, nervous, or often has no effect at all. Diet pills frequently contain the same or similar combination of ingredients and rarely contain anything new, innovative, or undiscovered to the supplement / weight loss industry. So, how can you find the best diet pill when most diet pills are made with similar ingredients? One of the most common problems associated with taking diet pills is that the person taking the diet pill is uneducated about the dosage, effects, and promises offered as they relate to each diet pill. The research at website finds that there are three factors that should be taken into consideration when deciding to take a diet pill. Dosage: It is important to take the pill exactly as recommended on the product label. Some people choose to increase the dosage thinking that the product will work faster or better. This is not the case, and many people become sick in response to the large dose. Reviewers at website often suggest that the recommended dosage be cut in half to give the body time to adjust to the stimulant in the diet pill. After the body has adjusted, it is fine to begin taking the regular dosage as recommended on the product label. Effects: The effects listed on the product label are there because these are the effects that the product has had on 'some' of the test group. Some of the diet pill testers may be fine taking the product, while others may have adverse effects. The diet pill companies print this information to educate the buyer as well as to protect themselves from lawsuits. The consumer needs to read the label and educate themselves before taking the product. Many people who are sensitive to caffeine are surprised when the diet pill makes them feel nervous or nauseous, but this information is likely printed on the product, so with a little research these affects can be avoided. Promises: If you read the fine print on product claims for diet pills and other weight loss supplements, you will see 'results not typical' printed very small somewhere where you are not expected to look. The diet pills advertised on television are responsible for some of the most outlandish claims. The results claimed in these advertisements are often unattainable within the given amount of time outlined in the ad. Don't expect to see results in two weeks like a lot of ads claim. Wouldn't it be great if you could read reviews for diet pills from actual users of each diet pill? Diet Pill Reviews website has taken the trouble out of searching for the best diet pill. You can read reviews of over 150 of the most popular diet pills available. Copyright 2006, Diet Pill Reviews [url=https://www.viagrapascherfr.com/]viagra pas cher[/url]
