Shortest verse – John 11:35

My last three posts have had a ‘Sorrow’ theme: ‘Sorrow, and then the two from Anne Frank’. I did not plan it that way…just the way it went. This one closes the mini-series.

Over many years, I have taught children to memorise verses from the Bible like Genesis 1 and Isaiah 40:31. In the mix, I also have them learn the shortest verse in the Bible. It doesn’t take long before even the young 4-5 year olds are correctly answering my question: ‘Shortest verse?’

Jesus Wept.
