In the 21st century the Good News is being shared via Twitter.
Each segment is limited to 140 characters — as any tweeter knows.
And you have to do it backward — otherwise Jesus doesn’t get born until the end.
Martin said he got pretty sick of counting 140 characters of Bible verses backward — especially in the Book of Matthew, where some names take up a big chunk of Twitter real estate, reaching lengths of up to 30 letters.
Inputting the lines in reverse order was necessary because Twitter shows the most recent post at the top of the page.
