Snopes Announces Fact-Checked Study Bible

U.S.—Popular fact-checking website Snopes.com has announced its first official hard copy Bible: the Snopes Fact Check Study Bible.

The study Bible is designed to undermine your faith at every turn by performing shoddily researched fact checks of every claim the Scriptures make. 

"Did Jesus rise from the dead? Fact check: LEGEND," the notes read in the gospels.

"Is Jesus Christ the Truth? Fact check: FALSE. Snopes is the only verifiable truth," another callout bubble reads in the Gospel of John.

Jesus's parables are the target of frequent fact checks in the study Bible, as Snopes authors seem to be unable to tell the difference between Jesus's obviously allegorical stories and historical narratives. The Bible contains a three-page-long fact check of the story of the prodigal son, for instance, pointing out that no historical evidence was ever found that the character in the parable ever existed.

One well-researched fact check asks whether or not Jesus even existed, concluding that results are "MIXED." The Snopes Bible points to evidence such as the fact that no one living today has seen Jesus and also that it'd be really inconvenient if His claims about Himself were true.

"If you've ever read the Bible and been unsure about what you're reading, the Snopes Fact Check Study Bible is for you," said a Snopes spokesperson. "Now you can actually be sure of God's Word because the infallible Snopes writers are telling you what to believe right there on the page."

"Is the Snopes Study Bible on sale for $49.99 now? Fact check: TRUE," the spokesperson concluded.
