In the Beginning Was the Tweet

Who wrote the first five books of the Bible? My childhood Sunday school teachers said that Moses wrote the Pentateuch. How could Moses have written about his own death and events that followed? Of course, they didn’t like it either when I asked that if the prophecy for the Messiah was that he would be of the House of David and born of a virgin then why is Jesus’ lineage at the beginning of the Gospel according to Matthew given through Joseph. Either he was born of a virgin or he was of the House of David.

Have you ever noticed just how many words are in the Bible? By some accounts, 773,692. That’s a lot of words.

Imagine trying to Tweet that. But someone has.

"Day 1: Lighting system installed. BRB. Days 2-6: Some assembly required: sky, plants, cows, people. Left humans in charge, LOL. Day 7: Siesta."

But the most efficient Tweeter of the Bible was Saint John. His most famous tweet? “Jesus wept.”


  1. Guess ya have ta read the entire lineage of Jesus and what happened with Mary and why. I pretty much have it down purty good.

  2. I always liked reading the apocrypha better.
