3 John is the shortest book in the New Testament, containing the fewest words. The words that are the shortest and longest The Bible's smallest book is the Bible's shortest book. Obadiah is the smallest book in the Old Testament, with 1 chapter, 21 verses, and 670 words, while John 3 is the shortest book in the New Testament and the whole Bible, with 1 chapter, 13 verses, and 299 words.

John is the name of Jesus' disciple who wrote this letter. This letter was most likely written from Ephesus, which was one of the seven churches mentioned in its content. Although it is called a "letter", it is actually a document that contains instructions for living a holy life. These instructions are similar to those given by Jesus himself during his public ministry on Earth, so they can be considered as an extension of His message.
This letter was most likely written around 90-95 AD when John was imprisoned in Ephesus. Its purpose was to encourage his readers, who were facing persecution because of their belief in Christ, just like John himself was.
Within these few pages, John tells his readers that God loves them and wants what's best for them. He also reminds them that following Jesus means agreeing with what He has done for us through His death on the cross. Finally, John tells them not to be concerned about evil people who say bad things about him since he is not responsible for their actions.
Genesis is the second-longest book in the Bible, with 32,046 words. By far the longest book in the Bible in terms of chapter length. The book of Psalms is just the third longest book in the Bible in terms of word count: 30,147. Ezekiel is the fourth-longest book in the Bible, with 29,918 words. It's worth mentioning that although Genesis is the second-longest book in the Bible, it only has two chapters while Psalms has four. There are also other books in the Bible that are longer than either one of these books but they have more than one chapter: Exodus (seven chapters), Leviticus (five chapters), Numbers (nine chapters), and Deuteronomy (thirty-two chapters).
In terms of content, Genesis covers topics such as creation, the flood, Noah's ark, animals, plants, humanity, and history. It is believed by many people that Genesis describes events that took place over a long period of time. For example, there is a story in Genesis about God creating light years before stars or planets existed. Also, there are stories about humans and dinosaurs living together which some think may have happened before or after the flood. This shows that some things in Genesis may not have taken place in a single day but rather over a long period of time.
Some believe that Genesis was written by several authors over a long period of time.

It contains only fourteen sentences to tell its story. And yet, it tells us about Jesus Christ and how we are saved by his death on the cross.
Short stories are often called "light reading." Although the Bible is full of stories that teach us valuable lessons about life, God, and faith, some people think that short stories are not important or cannot change lives. But the Bible shows us that stories have great power to teach *and* inspire. Think about it: Stories help us understand what happened in history; they remind us of things that have happened before; and they hope for something better tomorrow. The shortest story in the Bible is also one of the most powerful--Jude's letter to Christians living in Asia Minor (present-day Turkey). In just 25 words, he tells them why Jesus died on the cross and inspires them to live holy lives.
Short stories can be a fun way to learn about other countries too. For example, Psalm 126 is a collection of several poems that came from ancient Israel. It describes their love for their country and their longing for peace.
