When we refer to the Bible as the “Sword of the Spirit,” this isn’t quite what we had in mind.

The New York Police Department did a traffic stop and found a loaded Glock 17 handgun hidden inside a hollowed-out King James Bible.

According to an Aug. 12, 2015, UPI story, “The police department's 70th precinct shared a pair of pictures on Twitter of the Bible and gun seized during an early Monday traffic stop that led to three arrests. ‘The dangers our officers encounter,’ the tweet said.

"Police said the vehicle was pulled over at (approximately) 2:30 a.m. Monday and searched when officers detected the scent of marijuana. Investigators said they found marijuana, a gravity knife and the hollowed-out King James Bible containing a loaded Glock 17.”
