​​BIBLE TRIVIA 

William Tyndale was the Captain of the Army of Reformers, and was their spiritual leader. Tyndale holds the distinction of being the first man to ever print the New Testament in the English language. Tyndale was a true scholar and a genius, so fluent in eight languages that it was said one would think any one of them to be his native tongue. He is frequently referred to as the “Architect of the English Language”, (even more so than William Shakespeare) as so many of the phrases Tyndale coined are still in our language today.
Here is a list of phrase that had not been known until the bible was translated into English.

Although his work continued to aggravate the professors at the university, his printing and binding were of a very high quality. His Greek typeset was particularly elegant, and eventually he was awarded the title “Printer in Greek to the King” in 1539.
The royal patronage, and the royal money from government printing work, shielded Estienne from his opponents for many years. He twice published the entire Hebrew Old Testament, and in 1550 he published his third edition of the Greek New Testament – and that appears to have been one of the final straws. Eventually, the opposition became so fierce and violent that he and his family were forced to flee Paris in 1551, and they headed, initially, to Lyon.
Estienne loaded his family into a carriage and rode on horseback accompanying the carriage. In his pocket was a small copy of his third edition New Testament. To pass the time on the road, Estienne took out his New Testament and began to jot down where he thought the text should be divided into verses. In the thirteenth century, the New Testament had been divided into chapters by Steven Langton, the Archbishop of Canterbury, but there were as yet no verse divisions (in 1448, Rabbi Mordecai Nathan had previously divided the Old Testament into chapters and verses).
There are two reasons we know of why Estienne would do this. First, he was an ardent student of the Scriptures and thought that verses would help in studying the Bible. The second reason is
related to the first: He was planning to publish a concordance of the New Testament, and the work of assigning verse numbers was part of that project (sadly, the concordance was not published until after his death by one of his sons in 1594).
The Estienne family settled in Geneva, Switzerland, and Robert began to pursue his calling as a printer there. Soon after setting up shop in Geneva, he published his fourth edition of the New Testament in 1551 with his verse divisions included. He also used his presses to defend himself from the attacks of the faculty of the university.
By 1553, he had published a French language Bible and had also published a fine edition of John Calvin’s “Institutes of the Christian Religion.” His French language Bible was the first Bible published that combined Nathan’s Old Testament chapter-and-verse divisions with his New Testament divisions. The Geneva Bible, published the year after his death, and based in large part upon his work, was the first English language Bible to contain the verse divisions that we use today.

HOW THE BIBLE GOT ITS VERSE NUMBERS:
By the Editors of Leben
In 1524, the son of a Parisian printer took over his father’s business at the age of 21. There is nothing particularly unusual about a son taking over the family business, but the previous year, Robert Estienne had revised the Latin edition of the New Testament. Its subsequent publication was the first occasion of years of controversy that were to follow.--The controversy? Estienne had run afoul of the powerful and influential Roman Catholic faculty of the Sorbonne who thought it was a dangerous thing to have the  Bible in the hands of ordinary farmers and shopkeepers.
Estienne was undeterred and continued to publish editions of the Bible for sale and distribution as well as to speak approvingly of the Reformers’ theological views that were then being circulated. He even published many of Melanchthon’s works, further antagonizing his opponents.

                                HOW THE APOSTLES DIED.
1. Matthew
Suffered martyrdom in Ethiopia, Killed by a sword wound.
2. Mark
Died in Alexandria, Egypt , after being dragged by Horses through the streets until he was dead.
3. Luke
Was hanged in Greece as a result of his tremendous Preaching to the lost.
4. John
Faced martyrdom when he was boiled in huge Basin of boiling oil during a wave of persecution In Rome. However, he was miraculously delivered From death.
John was then sentenced to the mines on the prison Island of Patmos. He wrote his prophetic Book of Revelation on Patmos . The apostle John was later freed and returned to serve As Bishop of Edessa in modern Turkey . He died as an old man, the only apostle to die peacefully
5. Peter
He was crucified upside down on an x-shaped cross.
According to church tradition it was because he told his tormentors that he felt unworthy to die In the same way that Jesus Christ had died.
6. James
The leader of the church in Jerusalem , was thrown over a hundred feet down from the southeast pinnacle of the Temple when he refused to deny his faith in Christ. When they discovered that he survived the fall, his
enemies beat James to death with a fuller's club.
* This was the same pinnacle where Satan had taken Jesus during the Temptation.
7. James the Son of Zebedee, 
was a fisherman by trade when Jesus Called him to a lifetime of ministry. As a strong leader of the church, James was beheaded at Jerusalem. The Roman officer who guarded James watched amazed as James defended his faith at his trial. Later, the officer Walked beside James to the place of execution. Overcome by conviction, he declared his new faith to the judge and Knelt beside James to accept beheading as a Christian.
8. Bartholomew
Also known as Nathaniel Was a missionary to Asia. He witnessed for our Lord in present day Turkey. Bartholomew was martyred for his preaching in Armenia where he was flayed to death by a whip.
9. Andrew
Was crucified on an x-shaped cross in Patras, Greece. After being whipped severely by seven soldiers they tied his body to the cross with cords to prolong his agony. His followers reported that, when he was led toward the cross, Andrew saluted it in these words: 'I have long desired and expected this happy hour. The cross has been consecrated by the body of Christ hanging on it.' He continued to preach to his tormentors For two days until he expired.
10. Thomas
Was stabbed with a spear in India during one of his missionary trips to establish the church in the Sub-continent.
11. Jude
Was killed with arrows when he refused to deny his faith in Christ.
12. Matthias
The apostle chosen to replace the traitor Judas Iscariot, was stoned and then beheaded.
13. Paul
Was tortured and then beheaded by the evil Emperor Nero at Rome in A.D. 67. Paul endured a lengthy imprisonment, which allowed him to write his many
epistles to the churches he had formed throughout the Roman Empire. These letters, which taught many of the foundational Doctrines of Christianity, form a large portion of the New Testament.
Perhaps this is a reminder to us that our sufferings here are indeed minor compared to the intense persecution and cold cruelty faced by the apostles and disciples during their times For the sake of the Faith. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: But he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Why Do we feel sleepy in Prayer, 
But stay awake through a 3 hour movie?
Why are we so bored when we look at the HOLY BOOK,
But find it easy to read other books?
Why is it so easy to ignore a msg about God,
Yet we forward the nasty ones?
Why are Prayers getting smaller,
But bars and clubs are expanding
Why is it so easy to worship a celebrity,
But very difficult to engage with God?
Think about it, are you going to forward this?
Are you going to ignore it, cause you think you will get laughed at?
Forward this to all your friends.
80% of you won't forward this.
God said:
If you deny me in front of your
friends, I will deny you on the day of judgment:
When one door closes , God opens two : If God has opened doors for you.
