History of the Bible Exhibits
The History of the Bible exhibits will take you on a journey through centuries of Bible translation and Christian history. You will read fascinating stories of men of God who sacrificed their lives so that we could read the Bible today. You will see some of the rarest and most beautiful Bibles in the world. And you no longer have to travel to Jerusalem, Cairo, and London and get special permission from museums to see them- because now they are available to view right here in these virtual exhibits!
Our hope and prayer is that you will spend some quality time here so that when you leave, you will have gained a deeper love and appreciation for God's Word to us- The Holy Bible.
NOW OPEN - New Exhibit:
The History of the King James Bible - "The Price Paid for the Bible in English"
The average American home has three Bibles in English (or your native language). But owning a Bible in a language you can read was not always the case. Just as American Freedom was won by war heroes of the past, the priveledge to own an English Bible was paid for by the sacrifices of many Christian martyrs. In the History of the King James Bible exhibit, you will gain a deeper appreciation for the Bibles we have today. It is a fascinating story of smuggling, intrigue, fugitives, murder, and sacrifice.
This journey begins with the stories of brave men who faced opposition and even death to translate the Bible into English. It continues to show how the King James Bible came into existence, and explores modern translations in the 400 years since the First Edition of the King James Bible.
Exhibit Coming Soon:
Ancient Scriptures - "How the Bible Came to Be"
The journey begins on Mount Sinai as God began giving His Word to Moses and the new nation of Israel. The story continues as the collection of writings becomes know as "Scripture," and great care is take to preserve the original words exactly as they were first given under Divine inspiration. Hebrew scribes meticulously kept the books of the Law and the Prophets, and the message of the Messiah was spread by early Christians in Koine Greek. The exhibit concludes with a look at preservation of the Scriptures from the first century until the time of the printing press, and the exhibit includes examples of beautifully illuminated manuscripts.
