Sermon File Name Explanation
Back to Sermon Downloads
The file names for sermons are named using the two digit Bible book number (Genesis = 01, Revelation = 66, etc.), followed by the three digit chapter number (chapter 1 = 001, chapter 150 = 150, etc.), followed by the three digit verse number for the first verse of the sermon text (verse 1 = 001, verse 111 = 111, etc.). Hence, a sermon on Romans 1:21-23 has a file name of: 45001021.zip or 45001021.mp3. By naming the files in this way, the sermon files will appear in Biblical order by book, chapter & verse on a Mp3 player or in a computer file directory. See below for examples. Also see below for a list of Bible book numbers.
