People were laughing at me during Bible class this week. I had a question, but I needed to refer to another passage -- a passage whose location I could not pin down. Poor Pastor -- how can he answer a question comparing passages when I can't even tell him what they are? "I can't find it. I don't have the right Bible." (That's why they poked fun at me.)
Is it my brain being weird? Or do other people do this too? I can find things easier in the Bible that I use frequently. I might know that a verse in the psalms is about 1/3 of the way down the left-hand page, in the right column. Or I might know that it's a verse in the 30's of one of the major prophets, and it's in the bottom right corner of the page.
Hey, that makes it loads easier to find a passage I'm hunting!
The right Bible.
The words are no different.
But because of its layout,
its fit with my brain is different.
And that makes me happy.
