   Here we are 500 pages into a 1130 page Bible and, thus far, it is almost all written by men in government, about civil rulers or it is about the history of national governments.

  1. Governor Moses wrote the first five books, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. 

  2. Joshua and Judges were about governors.

  3. I Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles and 2 Chronicles recorded the history of the Kings of Israel and Judah.

  4. Kings David and King Solomon wrote four books;  Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and The Song of Solomon.

  5. The Book an Nehemiah is about Governor Nehemiah.

   Now we are at page 638. In the remainder of the Old Testament we have books about the prophets such as, Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel. The Prophets were sent to the governments of the nation. They delivered God's word to the king. Many times the king didn't like what he heard and the prophet had to leave town, hide, or be put in jail.

   Then we come to the New Testament. The Gospels are about the Kingdom of Heaven. In Acts 9:15, Paul was commissioned by Christ to bear His name before kings. Revelation 5:10 reads, ..and we (Christians) shall reign on the earth. So, in addition to all the 'religious' content, the New Testament also talks about government. In fact, at least 71% of your Bible is about government!
