Confession: In the Bible



 

Overview of "In the Bible" Series

The "In the Bible" series is a collection of articles and videos that take a topic and identify it's location in Sacred Scripture. Very little commentary is provided within this series to allow for the reader/viewer to draw from the verses themselves to come to the conclusion of what the Bible actually teaches on the matter. Verses are broken down into categories to help the reader/viewer navigate through the verses.


*Currently the book, chapter, and verse(s) are the only information included due to copyright of many versions of the Bible. Once a Bible version/translation that is not copyrighted is chosen for this series, articles will be updated to include the text as well.
