Isaac Newton: A Scientific Genius

Born in 1643, Isaac Newton is arguably one of the most influential scientists in history. He best known for his work with the Laws of Motion, ultimately a contribution to Einstein’s theory of relativity.

He was so brilliant, he invented calculus to better his own mathematical thought process!

But did you know? It’s likely he spent even more time on theology than on science, writing over a million words on biblical subjects in thousands of manuscripts rarely shared with anyone in his lifetime.

Known to study the Bible for weeks at a time, Newton’s writing reflects his great interest in miracles and prophecy, and not surprisingly, in the calculation of dates in the Old Testament.

One of his most extensive works was Observations Upon the Prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse of St. John, published in 1733!
