Shocked by the Bible: The Most Astonishing Facts You've Never Been Told by Joe Kovacs

How well do you really know the Bible? For instance, guess how many doves were aboard Noah's Ark. The answer is not two.

And guess on which day the Bible says Jesus died. Believe it or not, the Good Book doesn't mention Friday, and even more surprisingly, while the Bible says Jesus rose from the grave, it does not say it occurred Sunday morning. Remember, Jesus' followers found an empty tomb then.

But don't feel bad if you've always assumed otherwise. Like countless millions of people, you've just been misinformed, misled or even (dare we say) lied to about what the Bible actually says.

In a stunning investigation, news veteran Joe Kovacs goes on a mission to help both Christians and non-Christians alike find out what the Bible really contains, and what it doesn't.

"Shocked by the Bible: The Most Astonishing Facts You've Never Been Told" is an educational juggernaut that relies solely on the Holy Bible to reveal hundreds of Scriptural facts that many people of all persuasions simply don't know. The book instantly skyrocketed to the No. 1 position in three Bible-related categories on Amazon.com.

"I'm among the biggest fans of the Bible of all time," says Kovacs. "My goal is to educate people about the solid truth of Scripture and to stop the spread of erroneous information. I want people to crack open their Bibles and see with their own eyes what's actually printed on the pages, and what's not. It's shocking!"

According to Scripture, you won't find "Three Wise Men" mentioned anywhere in the story of Jesus' birth. For that matter, none are said to have shown up at the manger in Bethlehem. The truth straight from your own Bible is that an unspecified number of wise men first met Jesus as a "young child" in a "house," not a babe in a manger, and it might have been more than a year after He was born. Go ahead, look it up for yourself.

Also according to Scripture, you won't find a single mention of Easter eggs, but you will find God warning His people not to have anything to do with a pagan fertility goddess, whose name is synonymous with "Easter."

"Yes, I'm a Bible-believing Christian," says Kovacs. "But I'm not here to convert anyone. People are free to believe whatever they wish and can come to their own conclusions. I just want to show them the biblical record is often very different from what many assume. Not only will Christians love this book, but I think Jews, Muslims and even agnostics and atheists will get a kick out of it as well."

When the veil of presumption is removed and people see the words that are actually on the Bible's pages, readers will discover:

  • Jesus said no one has gone to heaven except Himself
  • "Christmas" is not mentioned in the Bible
  • The practice of decorating a tree with silver and gold is actually condemned by God
  • "Easter" has vanished from the Bible
  • Jesus made appearances on Earth on the Old Testament
  • God sought to kill Moses
  • The destiny of human beings is not what you think (it's not to float around on clouds in heaven)
  • God ran lotteries
  • Jesus did not come to make everyone understand His message
  • Noah's Ark is not said to have rested on "Mount Ararat"
  • Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were not Jews
  • Nagging wives are mentioned in Scripture
  • Women's breasts are celebrated in the Bible
  • There's a character in the Bible called a "dumb ass"
  • Underwear didn't disintegrate despite 40 years of heavy use
  • The worst case of hemorrhoids in history is recorded

I've read the book once through and will soon be reading it a second time. Some of the info I already knew as having studied the Bible on a deeper scale. I recommend it to all who have or have not studied their faith, as this book gives more meaning to their faith. I looked up many of the passages to see what I'd been reading for years to see a new perspective. I have a friend, who has a very extensive knowledge of the Bible and we had a very good discusion on some of the items listed in the book. I'm sure we will have more in the future. Great book.

If you are looking for a religious book, this is not it. If you are looking to further your serious study of the Bible, then look here for astonishing facts taken right from the Holy Book itself. The things in this book will astonish some, anger some, and make some look deeper into their faith with God as it did me. After reading this book, a lot of unanswered things have found a new meaning in my walk with Christ and have led to a whole new understanding of what God really meant when He inspired His chosen to write the Bible. Well written, humorous, and enlightening, this book is a must have for all those wishing to know the Truth as God inspired it!

In the end [at the Judgement] the Bible is the only Book that 'counts' one does well who reads it and obeys it's primary truth: Follow Jesus [God's only begotten Son}. Mr Kovacs 'exposes' this Truth with much humor, insight and scholarship.

This is a good example of mainstream christian thought. It reveals their bias and hate. These are the things christians say amongst themselves and it is not pretty if you are gay, any religion other than christian or even a liberal christian. But it is an interesting read. Especially if your looking to justify your prejudices.

I find the book well written as in style and flow. However, I thoroughly disagree with the pronouncement Jesus is/was the entity Abraham, Jacob, Moses etc... . had their interactions with not G-d the Father. I will take Moses word for who/what he encountered on Mt. Sinai, as well as the spirit which filled the Tabernacle when he would enter the meeting tent, specifically to meet {face to face}with "G-d." Further, While on Mt. Sinai Moses asked God, "Show me thy glory. And (God) said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee...and he said, Thou canst not see my face; for man shall not see me and live...and thou shalt see my back: but my face shall not be seen" (Ex. 33:18-23). When God spoke to Moses "face to face" He spoke as "a man unto his friend," i.e., familiarly (Ex. 33:11). Also, when Yesuha was asked by Mark about signs and times of the end, he replied "But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. I will take Yeshuas word that he as in the "Son" did not know only his Father did. Now this doesn't mean I believe Yeshua isn't aware and involved with the times now, only at the time he was asked he did not know for sure. So, I geuss what I'm saying is, they are certainly one now in all things and ways but prior to Yeshua becoming non-mortal (fully spiritual/heavenly) he did not know! Another human who directly interacted with G-d was Enoch, G-d called him a "Righteous Scribe" and [one day Enoch was no more, as he was taken up to Heaven to walk with G-d.] So, it's no wonder so many are confused, as there is much written and spoke that contradicts scripture. sort of how I see this book so far.
