Bible verse of the day #38


There are some people in the world who died from stupidity, like throwing themselves at a 22nd floor window trying to prove it was unbreakable, or forgetting that bungee ropes are made of elastic. And in Acts 20:9 we find a Biblical stupid death.

“Seated in a window was a young man named Eutychus, who was sinking into a deep sleep as Paul talked on and on. When he was sound asleep, he fell to the ground from the third story and was picked up dead.”

Paul literally bored someone to death with his preaching! Although I wonder if that was the first time… or even the last…

It says later that the man had somehow been alive despite falling from a third story window and dying. But saying that he was dead and then went home alive is a direct contradiction.
