The Great Isaiah Scroll at  The Israel Museum Credit: DSS Collections
“The Great Isaiah Scroll (1QIsaa) is one of the original seven Dead Sea Scrolls discovered in Qumran in 1947. It is the largest (734 cm) and best preserved of all the biblical scrolls, and the only one that is almost complete. The 54 columns contain all 66 chapters of the Hebrew version of the biblical Book of Isaiah. Dating from ca. 125 BCE, it is also one of the oldest of the Dead Sea Scrolls, some one thousand years older than the oldest manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible known to us before the scrolls' discovery.”

This is really Amazing!!!

Although creation tells us much about God as a wonderful all-powerful Creator, we need the Bible to teach us about the love, grace and mercy of God demonstrated through Christ’s work at Calvary’s cross.  Bible, The Greatest and unique gift human beings ever received.  But unfortunately the human beings just neglect to accept it as a great gift ever received.  Instead many, even the so called followers of  Jesus Christ just neglect it without finding time to read and meditate this wonderful treasure.

In relation to the reading of the Bible, here is a wonderful finding I just come across in my today’s reading.  This is really worth noting, so please read on:

Do you know ?

It takes 70 hours and 40 minutes to read the Bible through at pulpit rate.

It takes 42 hours and 20 minutes to read the Old Testament and 18 hours and 20 minutes to read the New Testament.

In the Old Testament the Psalms take the longest to read – 4 hours and 26 minutes.

In the New Testament The Gospel of Luke takes 2 hours and 43 minutes; that is less than 12 minutes a day to read it through a year.

These figures show that if a person reads his Bible 12 minutes a day, he could get through the Bible ones a year.

This means that if you spent a ½ hour a day reading the Bible, you could read the Bible through nearly three times a year.

HERE IS A BIG QUESTION!

How much time you are spending to read the Bible everyday?

Are you reading the Bible 30 minutes a day?

If not, take a decision today to read it everyday at least 30 minutes.

Make it a habit to read it daily — 30 minutes or more.

It is the only written communication between the Creator God and Man.
So please don’t neglect to read it.

Read it.
Meditate on it.
And have a constant communication with the Author of this wonderful Book.
That pleases the Creator God and will be a great blessing to you.

So, Let us do it diligently.

May God Bless.
