Special recognition is given to Conard Wolf, our Minister, for covering and applying many of these Bible verses during Wednesday Night Bible Study, Sunday School and Worship Service in 1992, 1993 and 1994.

Jeff Nape, my son, gave me the Bible software and contributed his time freely in setting up the computer format.

I am very thankful to my wife, Lois Ann, for her suggestions and document review.

Finally, I was inspired by Helen Hopkins, my Junior High School and Sunday School teacher, Carrollton, Ohio.

Introduction

The 714* Bible verses were selected in 1992, 1993 and 1994. Each verse is in the order it appears in the Bible--New International Version (NIV). I have outlined the speaker and the key words or thought after the verses. Although Paul is listed as the speaker for Hebrews, the author is not given in the Bible text itself.

You may find the Index (pages 63-72) helpful in locating verses. The Index has twenty-two topics. A verse may be listed under more than one topic.

A Summary of Topics in the Index is listed on page 73 as a quick reference.



*Note: 714 is 2.3 per cent of the 31,173 verses in the Bible.

               disciples: "Therefore I tell you,      Worry does not          
               do not worry about your life, what     change the              
               you will eat; or about your body,      situation.              
               what you will wear.                                            
               23 Life is more than food, and the                             
               body more than clothes.                                        
               24 Consider the ravens: They do not                            
               sow or reap, they have no storeroom                            
               or barn; yet God feeds them. And                               
               how much more valuable you are than                            
               birds!                                                         
               25 Who of you by worrying can add a                            
               single hour to his life?                                       
               26 Since you cannot do this very                               
               little thing, why do you worry                                 
               about the rest?

                6 After that, he appeared to more                             
               than five hundred of the brothers                              
               at the same time, most of whom are

  1Co 15:20-26 20 But Christ has indeed been          Paul...                 
               raised from the dead, the              Resurrection            
               firstfruits of those who have          of the dead.

               21 For since death came through a                              
               man, the resurrection of the dead                              
               comes also through a man.                                      
               22 For as in Adam all die, so in                               
               Christ all will be made alive.                                 
               23 But each in his own turn:                                   
               Christ, the firstfruits; then, when                            
               he comes, those who belong to him.                             
               24 Then the end will come, when he                             
               hands over the kingdom to God the                              
               Father after he has destroyed all                              
               dominion, authority and power.                                 
               25 For he must reign until he has                              
               put all his enemies under his feet.                            
               26 The last enemy to be destroyed                              
               is death.
