The Baptist Catechism Project

This site is intended to merge Keach’s Particular Baptist Catechism, excerpts from John Gill’s Exposition of the Old and New Testaments, and excerpts from Charles Spurgeon’s Treasury of David to create a single source which acts as a Catechism, Commentary, and Devotional.

Using Keach’s Catechism as a framework, each question’s scripture reference will be followed by excerpts from either Gill’s Exposition, Spurgeon’s Treasury, or both when appropriate.

The end result, Lord willing, will be a unique merging of three elements of personal devotion I have always felt inept at putting together myself. Namely, catechizing my children, providing meaningful devotional content for myself and my spouse, and teaching theologically sound exposition while reading Scripture.
