The Holy City

by Jim Rowe

A little Bible trivia:

            During our Saturday morning men’s  Bible Study we came to the tern “”holy city” in Nemiah 11:1. It was noted that this is the very first time the term “holy city” is used in the Bible.

            The term “holy city” first occurs in the Bible in Nehemiah after the temple and the wall around Jerusalem had been rebuilt after returning from Babylon. The term “holy city” is used only 10 times in the ASV version of the Bible. In Revelation 21:2, the term referrs to the “New” Jerusalem.
