Roman Mile

A Roman mile is a Biblical unit of measurement that is slightly shorter than a modern mile.  It is equivalent to .9 miles, 1620 yards, or 1.4 kilometers.

The Roman mile is referenced only once in the New Testament in Matthew 5:41 when Jesus instructs His followers to go the extra mile.
