The Bible Is Very Modern

James with Halo!
So many people say that they can't believe the Bible as it was written so long ago.  However this morning as I was reading in the book of Acts, from a modern version, I read the following verse -

"On the day set for the meeting, Herod, robed in pomposity, took his place on the throne and regaled them with a lot of hot air."
From Acts 12 (The Message)

So even though this was written about a political leader in 40AD, it seems to fit many of todays political leaders, whether here in England, or around the world.

LOL yes, even since ancient times, politicians have been full of hot air and other things too, I'm sure. Bet if we checked out some of the hieroglyphics, there must be a few of the pharoah and his big mouth. :P

Those words really jumped out at me. 2000 years on, and politicians don't change!!
