The last verse

Three Persons, six days to work,
One to rest, sixty-six books,
Forty-days and nights of rain.

One ark door, only One way,
Ten plagues sent, You free the slaves.
Ten Commands and two are great.

Twelve brothers, tribes and nations,
Judges, kings, prophets, and patience,
The King is coming to reign.

One witness, to show the way,
Twelve disciples, one betrays,
Four gospels and hearts are changed.

One Loved Son, tree of curses,
One Bible, with Your verses,
The last one ends with Your grace.

Behind the lines

The Bible is so rich in redemptive history, genealogy, and numbers. God’s story culminates in the birth, life, death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. This poem seeks to capture and summarize several major events, but it all boils down to one word in the very last verse (Grace).

The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.
(Revelation 22:21 ESV)
