On this historic day in our history as a nation, I find it fascinating that Obama will be using the same Bible that Lincoln used for his inauguration in 1861. I have to admit, I am getting more and more curious to see how he turns out as a President. He certainly has an opportunity to leave his mark upon history.
Click here to see a site that shows the Bibles used for different inaugurations throughout history and which verses they were opened to. Thanks to Zach for finding it.
My favorite was Reagan’s selection for both of his inaugurations:
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
