THE BIBLE KNEW THAT THE EARTH IS A SPHERE
In Prov.8:27 we read....”when He set a compass upon the face of the
depth” (1000 B.C.) and in Isaiah 40:22, “ it is He that sitteth upon the
circle of the Earth”....(700 B.C.)
One of the most difficult things for the older generations to
understand, was how the Earth could have a circular shape.
It appeared to contradict reason that bodies or objects on the Earth's
underside should not fall off, until Newton explained that what we
know as weight is simply the power of attraction between the Earth
and the bodies or objects in its vicinity. As we have seen above, the
Bible clearly stated long before Newton's time that the Earth is round.
Who told Solomon and Isaiah this truth?
THE BIBLE KNEW THAT THE EARTH HANGS IN SPACE
In Job 26:7 it is recorded “ He stetcheth out the north over the empty
place, and hangeth the world upon nothing” (1500 B.C.)
Copernicus was the first scientist to discover that the Earth is round
and that it hangs in space, but many centuries before he was born the
Bible had already taught this. Until the time of Copernicus (1475
A.D.), all of mankind thought that the Earth was supported by some
other foundation. Who revealed this truth to Job?
