Stuff in the Bible I didn't know was in the Bible

  • Dothan (but the Bible one, not the Alanama one)
    In Genesis 37:17 Joseph (he with the coat of many colors) goes to find his brothers who are tending their sheep near "Dothan." Of all the names in the Bible, I wonder why did someone in E.A. (Early Alabama) pick an obscure reference from Genesis to name their town Dothan.
  • Stairway to Heaven
    Wonder if the boys from Led Zeppelin were reading about Jacob's dream in Genesis 28:12 "...a dream in which he saw a stairway...to heaven."
  • Sodom
    From Genesis Chapter 19 (especially 19:5) - evidently homosexuality was crazy rampant in the town of Sodom, which is where the word "sodomy" comes from
  • Well Golly....
    The name Gomer came from Genesis 10:2. This Gomer (not the one from Mayberry) is one of Japheth's boys.
  • Nimrod
    From Genesis 10:8 - "Cush was the father of Nimrod, who grew to be a mighty warrior on the earth." Nimrod....
  • "As old as Methusaleh..."
    From Genesis 5:27 "As old as Methusaleh..." While not technically a verse in the Bible, this saying refers to the oldest guy ever known. And so I count it as a SITBIDKWITB.
  • "Brother's Keeper?"
    Am I my "brother's keeper?" Found in the Bible in Genesis 4:9
  • Tigris and Euphrates
    These rivers (in Iraq) are first named in the Bible in Genesis 2:14
  • "Raising Cain"
    This phrase is all about Cain, son of Adam and Eve, the first murderer in the Bible. (and I guess the first of all time.)
