For the first time ever in Israel, more than 200 of the rarest and most important Biblical manuscripts and texts will be displayed in Israel in an historic exhibition, titled "The Book of Books", at the Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem.

 

On display will be original fragments from the Septuagint, the earliest New Testament Scriptures, exquisite illuminated manuscripts, rare texts from the Cairo Geniza and original pages from the Gutenberg Bible. This exhibition is from the collection owned by Steven Green, a devout Baptist and the President of US craft store chain, Hobby Lobby. The exhibition  traces the history of the Jewish Bible, the Jewish roots of Christianity and the dissemination of monotheistic faith. In a speech he made at the exhibition's opening at the Bible Lands Museum  last week, Mr. Green explained that the display is intended to unite Christians and Jews.


The Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem, in cooperation with Verbum Domini, is proud to host this exhibition which will be in Israel before heading to the Vatican and afterwards to Washington D.C, where it will be permanently displayed in a museum which is being built next to the Smithsonian primarily for the purpose of hosting these rare texts and manuscripts.
