{ The B-I-B-L-E }

Sometimes when I'm having my quiet time with the Lord He'll put a word on my heart to research.  Sometimes.....
He'll put a word in.my.face for several days and I know He's TRYING to get my attention!
This morning, I pondered on the BIBLE....
the word and the actual book!
;-)

Here are a few things I found.....

Bible - Greek biblion, meaning paper or scroll
Comes from byblos - the papyrus plant that grew in marshes or along river banks, primarily along the Nile River.  Writing material was made from this plant.
Biblia - (plural) - Latin

Other names for the BIBLE

Good Book
Holy Word
The Word of God
Holy Scriptures
Book of the Law
Gospel
Law of the Lord
Living Word
Message of Christ
The Scroll
Sword of the Spirit
Words of the Lord
Logos

Do y'all have any more?
And, which is your favorite, besides BIBLE?

Mine are The Word of God and Living Word....
oh, and Message of Christ!!!

HOPE everybody has a Terrific Thursday!
