(Friday Church News Notes, July 17, 2015,, 866-295-4143 David Cloud)

The following is excerpted from “World’s Smallest,”Christian Headlines, Jul. 8, 2015: “Scientists in Israel have created the world’s smallest Bible, a text so small that it could fit on the tip of a pen. CNN reports theNano Bible includes 1.2 million letters of the Old Testament etched onto a minuscule disc. To read the Scripture, it would have to be magnified about 10,000 times. To create the Bible, scientists from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology used silicon that was 100 atoms thick and plated it with gold. The characters were engraved with a focused ion beam. The Nano Bible is now being displayed at the Israel Museum’s 50th anniversary exhibit.”
