"Even when you’re playing cards, you’re dealing with the Bible’s impact!
Invented in China before 900 BC, playing cards quickly spread in popularity.
The 52-card deck was first known in Egypt during the Middle Ages, spreading to Persia and ultimately to Europe.
French card decorating became a common art form with European royalty featured on the cards. Their style depicted the King of Clubs as Alexander, king of Macedonia, Julius Caesar as the King of Diamonds, Charlemagne the King of Hearts,
and the King of Spades? David from the Bible! It is a surprising cultural legacy seen on the traditional face card, often picturing David holding a sword as a reference to the Sword of Goliath.
The Bible—literally impacting every area of our lives!"
