4, 1982 96 STAT. 1211
Public Law 97-280
97th Congress
Joint Resolution
Authorizing and requesting the President to proclaim 1983 as the “Year of the Bible”.
Oct. 4, 1982
[S.J. Res. 165]
Whereas the Bible, the Word of God, has made a unique contribu-
tion in shaping the United States as a distinctive and blessed
nation and people;
Whereas deeply held religious convictions springing from the Holy
Scriptures led to the early settlement of our Nation;
Whereas Biblical teachings inspired concepts of civil government
that are contained in our Declaration of Independence and the
Constitution of the United States;
Whereas many of our great national
leaders—among
them Presi-
dents Washington, Jackson, Lincoln, and
Wilson—paid
tribute to
the surpassing influence of the Bible in our country’s develop-
ment, as in the words of President Jackson that the Bible is
“the
rock on which our Republic rests”;
Whereas the history of our Nation clearly illustrates the value of
voluntarily
appl3dng
the teachings of the Scriptures in the lives of
individuals, families, and societies;
Whereas this Nation now faces great challenges that will test this
Nation as it has never been tested before; and
Whereas that renewing our knowledge of and faith in God through
Holy Scripture can strengthen us as a nation and a people: Now,
therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate and
House
of Representatives of the United
States of America in Congress
assembled,
That the President is
^fi^^°^**^®
authorized and requested to designate 1983 as a national
“Year
of
the Bible” in recognition of both the formative influence the Bible
has been for our Nation, and our national need to study and apply
the teachings of the Holy Scriptures.
Approved October 4, 1982.
