  1. A book that sells 30,000 copies qualifies for the New York Times bestseller list. How many copies of the Bible sell each year? (Ballpark estimate for the United States would be fine.) I thought the Gideons gave them away. About 10 million a year, since 1450. (Based on sales of 6 billion)
  2. How many Gospels are there, and what are their different styles and messages? 4, not sure about the rest'
  3. Which of the Gospels are attributed to eyewitnesses? 2 - Matthew & John
  4. In which language are the oldest manuscripts for the Gospels written? Hebrew, Aramaic, with the NT being written in Koine Greek.
  5. Who wrote the most books in the New Testament? Paul
  6. How long is the New Testament compared to an average book on the New York Times bestseller list? I assume the NT has a longer word count.
  7. Who first translated the New Testament into English based on the oldest manuscripts? Some would say John Wycliff, but they'd be wrong. The Venerable Bede and Aldhelm both translated bits of the Bible into Old English around the 7th Century.
  8. Was the English translation banned after King Henry VIII split from Rome? No, Wycliff's Bible was banned as anti-Catholic heresy and his body was exhumed and burnt posthumously, 30 years after his death.
  9. In what language is the Gutenberg Bible? Latin
  10. How many books are in the Bible? (Approximation is fine.) 66 - 39 OT; 27 NT
  11. What are some of the oldest books in the Bible? Some say Job, must agree on the Pentateuch being the oldest
  12. Who wrote the Acts of the Apostles? Paul
