President Joe Biden was sworn into office by Chief Supreme Court Justice John Roberts just before noon in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday.

Biden took the oath of office on a Celtic bible that has been in his family since the 19th century. He also used the bible during his swearing-in ceremonies for the U.S. Senate and vice presidency, according to The New York Times.

“Every important date is in there,” Biden added of the bible in a recent interview. “For example, every time I’ve been sworn in for anything, the date is inscribed.”


Biden’s swearing in took place directly on the heels of Vice President Kamala Harris’ own swearing in. Supreme Court Justice Sony Sotomayor administered Harris’ oath of office.
