Catholics and other Christians revere the Bible but certain Catholic beliefs are often called unbiblical. Learn the Scriptural basis for Catholic beliefs, discuss common objections, and learn the Church's response.

About

Catholics are often asked by fellow Christians, “Where is that in the Bible?” While Catholics hold that the deposit of Faith is found both in Scripture and Tradition, we need to show the Scriptural foundations of our beliefs to those who consider Scripture the only authority.

Here you can explore the Scriptural basis for many Catholic beliefs that other Christians consider controversial. You can also find answers to common objections to the Church’s interpretation of those verses, drawing on other verses and historical context to explain the Catholic perspective. We hope this helps you and our brothers and sisters in Christ discover the Biblical roots of Catholic beliefs in a deeper way.

Are we missing a verse you think we should discuss? Let us know.
