“THE VALUE OF pi”
IS IT ‘3’ or ‘3.14’?
The King James Bible is a book of precise and exact mathematics!
made a molten sea of ten cubits from
brim to brim, round in compass, and five cubits the height thereof;
line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.”
2 Chronicles 4:2
Firstly, before any mathematician new that the value of pi = 3.14, the Bible already had it there in writing.
Secondly, to add stupidity to their ignorance, the modern Bible corrector says
“The Bible is wrong. We’ve found an error in the King James Bible with the dimensions of the “molten sea”
“Ah Yes!” the modern King James Bible Corrector crows
“because the value of pi should be 3.14 (22 divided by 7), the
dimensions for the “molten sea” bowl in the King James Bible make the
be only 3 (three). Aren’t we clever! Therefore you down-trodden
you are now released from believing the King James Bible is without
Choose other bibles that are full of errors.”
This is their mathematical proof being based on a radius of 90 inches.
Circumference (C) = 30 cubits = 540 inches (1cubit = 18 inches)
Radius (r) = 5 cubits = 90 inches (Diameter = 10)
C = 2 x
540 = 2 x pi x 90
:. pi = 540/180
= 3 … “THREE! THEY SHOUT WITH GLEE - THE KING JAMES BIBLE IS WRONG!”
However in their hatred for the King James Bible, and/or their desire to be famous King James Bible Correctors, they have utterly failed to understand the construction of the Laver and its dimensions! Their willing ignorance has seen them add stupidity to their blindness (Matt 15:14).
From the Book of Kings we see a further dimension of the HAND BREADTH of 4 INCHES!
“And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about…And it was an hand breadth thick …” (1 Kings 7:23, 26)
THE BRASEN LAVER OF THE MOLTEN SEA
The Bible Correctors have not accounted for the width of the lip or edge, which is 4 inches!
The circumference of 30 cubits is based on the radius of 86 inches NOT 90 inches!
The correct mathematics has a radius of 86 inches not 90 inches.
C = 2 x pi x r
540 = 2 x pi x 86
:. pi = 540 / 172
= 3.14 approx
WELL … HOW
It’s called HORIZONTAL BIBLE STUDY – comparing scripture with scripture.
