Progressive Baptist Church's Website
You may ask, "What, pray tell, is Biblical Olio?" First, it is a topic that piqued your interest enough to get you to this page. Praise God! Encarta's first definition of Olio is a "stew". Since this is not a cooking site; the only thing we are stewing up is a collection of miscellaneous information, which is the second definition of Olio. So, Biblical Olio will be a collection of interesting facts, fallacies, and any thing else we could find related to the Bible. We hope you will check back because we will try to update this page regularly.
