Did you know there’s no constitutional requirement that a Bible be used in taking the oath of office?
President Obama used three Bibles for his second inaugural in 2013.
January 20 fell on Sunday that year, so he was officially sworn in at the White House, using a Bible belonging to Michelle Obama’s grandmother.
St the public ceremony the next day, the President used two significant Bibles--the Lincoln Bible and Martin Luther King's "traveling" Bible--to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington in 1963, where King quoted a number of biblical passages in his famous "I Have a Dream" speech, including Amos 5:24: "We will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream.”
