Weekly Bible Fact: Since ancient times, the Bible has been separated into books. In the late Middle Ages, each book was divided for easy reference into larger units, or chapters, and a few centuries later the chapters were further divided into smaller units, or verses. Today, we use the book, chapter, and verse for easy identification, although some translations have discrepancies in this reference system.
