And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. (John 19:19)
When building the church we should probably strive to adhere to the doctrines and principles of the first century church because it was founded on a first hand witness of Christ’s life, death and resurrection, the apostles were gifted with the Holy Spirit when establishing the early church and so you would expect the first churches to be an example of harmony, perfect knowledge, strong faith and enthusiasm.

Word clouds are very popular on blogs and social networking sites to give a visualisation of how frequently a word is used on a site. The more frequently the word appears, the larger the font, so the important words really stand out and you can get an instant idea of what the site or post is about.
We’ve taken that idea and applied the same principles to chapters of the Bible, providing an instant overview of the key words within the chapter. First up is Romans chapter 1 in which Paul opens up the book of Romans with a description of the Gentile world, his calling, what the gospel is and commendation of their faith.
Here we see some of the key words being: God, faith, Jesus, Christ, gospel, unrighteousness, power.
This idea of word or tag clouds will work better for some chapters than others, but it is certainly fascinating to see the overview of the chapter so visually!
