Very useful - thank you and may God bless your effort. With love.


Your summary's of the bible are GRAET but I think you should make them a little longer. I mean, I know you probably think its cool that you did them in 140 characters or less but it doesn't give a lot of detail and everything's not mentioned in them.


Its great but should be little longer


This summary is too short, and you leave out most of the important details.


Hi everyone above - yes, I had to miss out a lot to keep the summaries short enough to post on Twitter. This project is more useful as a zoomed-out overview than for all the details. There are other good resources to get the details.


How similar:
Gen 27. Jacob gets the blessing of the firstborn Esau.
Gen 48. Ephraim gets the blessing of the firstborn Manasseh.
