Scientific facts in the Bible

 Earth’s Free Float in Space

Job 26:7 (written 3,500 years ago): “He stretches out the north over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing.”

The Bible proclaims that the earth freely floats in space. Some in ancient times thought that the earth sat on a large animal. We now know that the earth has a free float in space.

The earth is round

Isaiah 40:22 (written 2,800 years ago): “It is He who sits above the circle of the earth.”

The Bible informs us that the earth is round. Though it once was commonly believed the earth was flat, it was the Scriptures that inspired Christopher Columbus to sail around the world. He wrote: “It was the Lord who put it into my mind...There is no question the inspiration was from the Holy Spirit because He comforted me with rays of marvelous illumination from the Holy Scriptures…” (from his diary, in reference to his discovery of “the New World”).

The blood is the source of life

Remarkably, only up until recent centuries, a process known as bloodletting was used to attempt to cure diseases. The procedure involved the withdrawal of blood in mass and traces its roots back to ancient Egypt. Whilst giving the law to the Israelites in Leviticus, God informed Moses that ‘The life of the flesh is in the blood (Leviticus 17:11). With that said, it is surprising that the practice of bloodletting carried on for so long.
