Interesting Bible Trivia

   Below are some interesting details plucked from the Bible:

  Jacob’s wife Rachel was Oriental (Genesis 29:1-9) With Rachel in Jesus’ genealogy, this means Jesus had Oriental genes.

  Samson went to a prostitute before he met Delilah (Judges 16:1) This was a first sign of his weakness for women.

  Delilah was paid 1,100 pieces of silver for Samson’s capture 33 times more than what Judas got for betraying Jesus (Judges 16:5; Matthew 27:3)  Those men knew how to bargain with women.

  Law against tattoo (Leviticus 19:28) It is now big business.

  During Biblical time sleeveless attire was humiliating (Psalms 109:29)  Global warming cut the sleeves off.

  It snowed in King David’s kingdom (2 Samuel 23:20-23)  Movies about David always showed warm climate.

  One of the Judges of Israel, Ibzan had 30 sons and 30 daughters (Judges 12:9) 60 children, he served as Judge for 7 years and then he died.

  Jesus’ advise to policemen and soldiers “Do not harass anyone or accuse falsely, and be content with your wages.” (Luke 3:14) It is still applicable today.

  God taught the Israelites woodwork, jewelry manufacturing, tool making and all kinds of craftsmanship (Exodus 31:3-5)  Fresh out of Egypt and they were taught to make jewelry for the ladies.  God sure can read the hearts of women.

The above collection of trivia is in the Bible because God meant it to be in there. (Revelation 22:18-19)
