What a genealogy! Seeing the chapter in short form like this is very cool.

Have you considered condensing each book into a single tweet once you've finished the chapters?

Then you could compress it again to one tweet each for the Old and New Testaments. And then a final push and the entire Bible could be summarised in one tweet.



Thanks Chris, I like those ideas. Perhaps when I've finished...


just a little longer


In failing to read the genealogy of Jesus we miss the last four words of the chapter which affirms Jesus is .......the Son of God


I love jesus
