Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Smallest Bible

"But this is the covenant which I will make
with the house of Israel after those days,"
declares the LORD, "I will put My law within them
and on their heart I will write it;
and I will be their God, and they shall be My people."
—Jeremiah 31:33

Well it is small enough to easily be inscribe on the human heart anyway...The Associated Press reports that Israeli scientists have created the world's smallest Hebrew Bible. How small? The text measures less than 0.01 square inch surface. It took about roughly an hour for the 300,000 words to be etched on a silicon surface about half the size of a grain of sugar. The full text of the article is here: Scientists inscribe entire Bible on head of a pin. I'm fairly certain that writing it on our hearts is still God's job.

I delight to do Your will, O my God;
Your Law is within my heart.
—Pslam 40:8
