Do you have the Bible app YouVersion on your phone? Over 255 million people from around the world do. It gives the entire Bible in over 1500 versions and in over 1,000 languages. (This was originally the project of a church here in Oklahoma.)
The technology gives the YouVersion people lots of data. They can tell what Bible passages are the most highlighted, bookmarked, and shared with others. With those criteria, guess what the world’s favorite Bible passage is. See the answer after the jump.
The link also gives the favorite Bible passages of 88 different countries. What can you tell about them or about the state of Christianity on the basis of that Bible verse?
UPDATE: Notice how the world’s favorite Bible verse is about being “called”; that is, it is about vocation!
