Fear Not, have Peace and Rejoice.

Like many of us I’ve read the Bible a fair amount, but of course, I’ve not counted the individual words. But someone has.

I’m informed by a reliable source (though I don’t remember where now) that the words Do not fear appear 370 times in the whole of the Bible. the word peace is seen 88 times in the New Testament , in every book except 1 John and the word  rejoice appears 70 times also in the New Testament.

These three words seem to sum up the Christian faith. It sounds pretty good to me.
