People 2000 years ago likely appeared similar to modern humans, but with differences in clothing styles, hairstyles, and cultural practices. They would have had varying skin tones, hair colors, and facial features depending on their geographic location and ethnicity. Additionally, dental health may have been poorer due to a lack of modern oral hygiene practices.

It would depend on the individual's personal beliefs and how they interpret religious teachings. Some Jehovah's Witnesses may avoid fireworks as they are associated with celebrations that they do not participate in due to religious reasons, such as holidays or nationalistic events.

How many Jehovah's Witnesses are on welfare?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The statistics are unavailable, as the client privilege applies. However, there are good indications that many Jehovah's Witnesses are vulnerable to the economic conditions which result in persons seeking social assistance. One of the biggest negative contributors is their disdain for higher education, leaving them little choice but to seek employment in volatile or menial industries, such as cleaning, window-washing or factory work. There are exceptions, of course - those who are realistic about their situation will often take courses to allow a higher-paying bracket to be attained. These end up as Elders. :/

In what part of the world are Jehovah's Witnesses most predominant?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

There are a number of ways you can look at this, and I will try to do my best to answer it from as many different standpoints as I can.

In St. Helena, the concentration of JW's per resident seems to be the greatest. 1 out of every 35 residents in St. Helena is a JW, according to the 2008 report. But there are only about 4000 residents of St. Helena, so there are only about 115 JW's there.

In the US, There are about 1.1 million JW's, which is the highest total number of JW's of any country in the world, but there are several countries that have over a half million witnesses, including Mexico, which actually has a much higher concentration of JW's per population than the US does.

Japan has about 25% of the total number of JW's than the US does, but each JW in Japan spends about twice the amount of time in the public preaching work as those in the US.

in Tasmania - Actually Tasmania is part of Australia which has 64,815 Jehovah's Witnesses; this works out at a ratio of one Jehovah's Witnesse for every 339 inhabitants.

There is a low ratio in Barbados (108), Guadeloupe (53) or Martinique where there is one Witnesses for every 87 inhabitants. It seems therefore that the French Carribean is the most popular area in the World for Jehovah's Witnesse.

The lowest ratio of the general population to Jehovah's Witnesses is in Niuean an island dependency of New Zealand in the south-central Pacific Ocean east of Tonga where there is one Jehovah's Witness for every 47 inhabitants.

According to the Newspaper Excelsior, the town of Bejucalde Ocampo in southern Mexico has the rare exception of being a town where "the majoroity of [its 6,673] inhabitants are Jehovah's Wtinesses"

ACTS 1:8 but YOU will receive power when the holy spirit arrives upon YOU, and YOU will be witnesses of me both in Jerusalem and in all Ju·de´a and Sa·mar´i·a and to the most distant part of the earth."

How many people are still alive that were born in 1914?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I can find nothing I can define as definitely reliable, but I did find this:

"As of 2000, there are over 200,000 people over 100. The UN estimates that by 2013, there will be 3,000,000 centenarians."

Right now those born in 1914 are about 95 years old. If the above information is accurate, it seems that there must be about 3,000,000 born on or before 1914.

How many Jehovah's Witnesses are there in the whole world?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Currently (early 2014) there are almost 8million active witnesses of Jehovah in the world, preaching in almost 300 different lands, and offering literature, videos, and Bible studies in 100's of different spoken and signed languages.

They willingly do this in obedience to Jesus' command at Matthew 28:19,20, volunteering their own money, time and energy to contact as many people as possible with the good news of God's Kingdom and offering free home Bible studies.

In 2012 well over 7 and a half million members were actively witnessing worldwide about God's Kingdom and his righteousness. (Matthew 6:33, 24:14; 28:19,20)

I remember a friend asking me, on finding out I was going to a small Assembly, how many were going to be there. He thought about 150. He was a little surprised when I said the figure would be over 1,000 from ten different congregations. He had thought that, although we seem to be at people's doors frequently, to be very few in number. While that is true in some places, in other areas the Witnesses are well represented numerically.

In 2011, 7,659,019 publishers of the good news reported from 236 lands and islands. (In comparison, there were 205 countries represented at the Olympics recently.) All these Christians give willingly of their time and resources to try and help people from all backgrounds to hear the Bible's message. Literature is now available in 630 languages including for those who are blind or deaf.

In 2010 there were over 18 million worldwide in attendance at the annual observance of the memorial of the death of Jesus Christ.

As of September 2009, the exact number was 7,313,173.

When I first heard Bible truth from the witnesses in the year 1995, there were only 3 million active witnesses worldwide (if I remember correctly).

Jehovah's witnesses do not count in their totals the number of meeting attenders or visitors, but only those who are actively sharing the good news about God's Kingdom (ruled by Jesus Christ) and witnessing regularly about their Grand Creator and Instructor, Almighty Jehovah God. (Psalm 83:18)
