"La Biblia" translates to the Bible, according to Word Reference. The noun is feminine, which is why "la" is placed in front of "Biblia."

The preposition "en" is used to mean "on" when the sentence refers to a place, mode of doing something or indicates direction and means "in" when talking about time.
