DID YOU KNOW: That the Golden Rule is from the Bible?

  • The story of Sodom and Gomorrah is a cautionary tale of the destructive consequences of sin. Sodom and Gomorrah were cities mentioned in Genesis, notorious for their flagrant sin. Genesis 18:20-21 states, “The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know.”

  • Since the first printed Bible, the Holy book of Christianity has spread worldwide, and it consistently ranks as the most popular book in many countries around the world. An estimated 100 million Bibles are sold each year.
  • The “Golden Rule,” often known as “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” is credited to Jesus in the book of Matthew.

 

  • The many people who died because of or in defense of their Christian faith are known as “martyrs.” They are also considered saints by the Catholic Church.

 

  • The first time Bathsheba’s name is mentioned in the Bible is in 2 Samuel 11:3. The man whom King David sent to find out about her identified her as, “Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and the wife of Uriah the Hittite” (2 Samuel 11:3).The prior verse says while she was bathing, the king was walking around on the roof of the palace and saw her. Next thing she knew, messengers from the king were at her house to take her to the palace.
