The Bible Reveals that the Earth is Round!

How The Earth Looks

The Scriptures tell us that the earth is round: “It is He that sits upon the Circle of the Earth” (Isaiah 40:22).

The word translated “Circle” here is the Hebrew word chuwg, which is also translated “Circuit” or “Compass” (depending on the context). That is, it indicates something spherical, rounded, or arched-not something that is flat or square. The book of Isaiah was written sometime between 740 and 680 B.C. This is at least 300 years before Aristotle suggested, in his book On the Heavens, that the earth might be s sphere. it was another 2,000 years later (at a time when science believed that the earth was flat) that the scriptures inspired Christopher Columbus to sail around the world.

  1. James Shipp says:

    It doesn’t say sphere it says circle. UPON the CIRCLE of the earth. If God meant SPHERE he would’ve said SPHERE. A COMPASS is a FLAT CIRCLE. You are utterly deceitful and wrong for this and you should retract and correct your statement! You are lying about the Bible! You are lying about God’s word!

  2. Duke Ickthorn says:

    except that a circle is FLAT. A globe is a 3d object. So, you’ve proven the Bible proves that the Earth is flat. I think Pastor you need to read your bible again in ITS ENTIRETY

    • First Duke, if you look at the second sentence after the third, “or arched – not something that “is flat” or square.” Is how I had written that. I’ll explain this once again to you, so that hopefully something might jar loose in that circular or “FLAT” in ITS ENTIRETY, head of yours so you will understand the ancient sophistication that they actually had between 740 and 680 BC.

      “Kukloo” – is Greek and signifies “to move in a circle, the compass about,” as of the city “encompassed” by armies, Luke 21:20; Hebrews 11:30. In the Old Testament the armies encircled the city and encompassed it, some cities were against mountains and armies would get on top of these mountains and circle these cities in a 3D fashion…

      Duke, these people understood that a compass was a circle was an orange that look like the sun that traveled around the earth that was made by God. They weren’t that stupid first of all.

      Second of all, and if there’s anything that you take away from this whole point, please take this away from this answer. he

      “The Holy Spirit is God, and God, through inspiration, wrote the Bible, through men!!!… God knew what He was doing when He wrote that word, do you?

    • James Shipp says:

      Amen Duke! And here this other guy is trying use his own words instead of GOD’s word! The verse didn’t say anything about anything arched or spherical! And to say it was THEIR understanding back then is to say that man wrote the Bible and not God! Blasphemy! God wrote the Bible through man with GOD’s own words! This man can take his works and put em where the sun don’t shine! Falsehoods!
