Why the ‘slave Bible’ had full chapters removed

Posted By : Collins/ 285 0

A publication by NBC News has revealed how the slave bible used to teach slaves had several pages and in some cases, whole chapters removed to “Instill Obedience And Uphold Slavery”.

The “Slave Bible” on display at Washington’s Museum of the Bible has a mere 232 chapters, showing how whole chapters were removed to instil obedience, prevent rebellions and promote the horror of slavery.
