Exerts from the Holy Bible.

M stands for Miracles. Jesus performed numerous miracles which proved his authority over sickness and disease. The Bible mentions around 35 miracles that Jesus did, but itís estimated he achieved many more.

I stands for Isaac. Godís proclaimed name for Abrahamís son. He was the promised one, the heir through whom Godís other promises would be fulfilled.

N stands for New, as in Testament. It begins revealing the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah. Originally written as letters, or epistles, to churches.

U stands for Uriah, an intensely loyal soldier who died in battle. Itís said that David was as guilty of Uriahís death as if he had plunged a sword into his heart.

T stands for Trinity of the Holy - God the father, God the son, and God the holy spirit.

E stands for Exodus. Moses leading the Israelites out of bondage, parting the Red Sea, and delivering the Ten Commandments of Almighty God.

S stands for Sarah, the wife of Abraham. The dead sea scrolls contains descriptions of her extreme beauty. When Abraham was 100 yrs old, and Sarah was 90, they conceived their son Isaac through divine guidance.

Put them all together they spell MINUTES.

Clever way to express the theme but I think you meant to say, "Excerpts" from the Holy Bible.

Acrostics are a great creative technique. Try to make each "letter" apply to the them of the main word.
This could be developed into a children's story.

To Patricia (above).
Yes, you are probably right. However, the definition of "Exert" is "To put to use or effect; put forth." In my Defense that is probably enough for an attorney to argue "reasonable doubt".
lol,
the author

PS- Bet you're an English teacher, huh?

I must admit I was distracted in the beginning trying to decipher how exert fit in, then thinking to see if you meant excerpt which I suppose either word would fit. I did like how you pulled important parts of the Bible out into the word. Nicely done.

Could I place a foot in both camps by saying this entry could be an excerpt-ionally creative acrostic; to avoid any 'acronym'onious atmosphere building up?
Dr. Joe K. Reed03/16/11
This is turning into a blog board.
OK Noel, you were right about Acrostic. Now sample this - [via French from Greek akrostikhis, from acro- + stikhos line of verse, stich]
