The Bible has 66 books and hundreds of thousands of verses and words.
But there is a clear winner (at least in English!) of what is the shortest verse in the Bible. It is John 11:35. The verse?
Jesus wept when he came to his friends' home and Lazarus was dead. But what came next? Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead! So Jesus had compassion for Mary and Martha, who were Lazarus' sisters, but He also used his miracle working power to totally change the situation!
