Reading Stats for the New Testament

[12/6/15 UPDATE: I went back and corrected a bunch of these numbers. Several of them were off from the Bibleworks database (even then, though, the BW database is counting 11 dashes as words, so I’m not sure what’s up with that). Anyway, these are more accurate.]

Speaking of how long the Bible is (or isn’t), below are the stats for the New Testament (a follow up to January’s Old Testament stats, again using the NASB and assuming 150 WPM).

Enjoy!
