Running head: THE BIBLE AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE The Bible and Criminal Procedure The Bible in the Old Testament features various scriptures that teach about how criminals should be prosecuted and the entire criminal procedure. From the scriptures, it is clear that justice is paramount when dealing with any criminal case (Isbell, 2014). According to Deuteronomy 19:15, the testimony of only one witness should not b regarded as enough to prosecute a criminal. Furthermore, Deuteronomy 17:6 says that the testimony of more than one witness can be used to come up with a judgment for the criminal. The above scriptures portray the right way to deal with criminals today. Courts across the world do not depend on the testimony of a single witness to come up with a judgment. Every criminal has a right to judgment and this cannot be achieved by using only one witness. Therefore, the Biblical teaching concerning witnesses in the criminal procedure is right.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
