  • The paper must rely on biblical texts, but the Bible does not count as one of the 10 and must not be listed in the bibliography.

 

  • You may list the version of the Bible you are using as a footnote at the initial use of a biblical citation, but no other bibliographic information is needed for it.

 

  • The title page and bibliography are not used to determine word count.
