Museum of the Bible Visitors Top Half a Million in First Six Months

The Good Book is shaping up to be a good draw on the crowded landscape of museums in the nation’s capital.

The Museum of the Bible, the newest tourist attraction near the National Mall, has drawn 565,000 visitors since it opened six months ago, according to museum figures released Thursday (May 17).

While that’s less than half as many as visited the National Museum of African American History and Culture in its first six months, it’s enough to assure organizers that a robust audience is hungry for Bible-related exhibits. ...

Called the “Washington Pentateuch," this is one of the oldest, intact Hebrew Bible manuscripts of our time.  It contains the entire five books of the Torah and was held in a private collection for the last 40 years until it was acquired by the museum two years ago.
Ah, the link in the article gives a Jewish perspective on The Museum of the Bible quite interesting--as is the above article.

I know you meant it in a humorous way, Watcher. I guess it just struck a nerve. I was one of those poor, throwaway kids, and it seems that my entire ministry has been about reaching the down and out with the gospel that can get them up and in.

Amen, Tim. I was just joking there. Yes, God usually uses the down and out, the dumb, ignorant, and backward to turn the world upside down. Heck, He chose me! That's sure saying something about His sense of humor.

Good. This past Sunday at my Baptist Church during morning worship one of the Deacons who has cancer of his tongue and of the lymphatic nodes in his neck spoke before the congregation. He stated that the doctors at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota have given him 6 months to live. I am lifting him up before the Lord Jesus in prayer for a miraculous recovery. That Deacon is a close friend of mine. He and his wife have been providing transportation services to church and to other locations around town. This past Friday I walked over to church and told Pastor Steve that I needed to get a new ride to church because of the cancer of that Deacon. One of the other Deacons was there in the church office and stated that he would take over providing me with transportation services to church on Sundays.

Thanks ol boy! Keep the walls up and the free bacon handy and you should have little to be concerned about from the likes of him. Personally if this museum was situated in a mobile home park their visitor count would have surpassed this mark on its very first day!

Hey John, you're reasoning sounds like heresy to me. Just joking, I understand where you're going with it. Actually, I'm not sure I read your comment, and was responding more to Gay, I believe. I'd have to take a look.
While I'm here, I wanted to tell you that I think you've finally honed your correcting/admonishment, etc., skills. There was a time, in days gone by, when you would go for the jugular, and could be very condescending when it came to matters of doctrine that you were in disagreement with. This thread isn't an example, but you know what I mean because I can tell that you've been working on things. We're all to do our best in emulating Him, and that begins, first and foremost, with being honest with our own shortcomings and needs for improvement. How can we judge righteously, and how can we correct and be respected, if we are either blind to, or above reproach ourselves. We can give it, but we should also be happy to be on the receiving end at times as well in our quest for personal and spiritual growth. You're not perfect though, I'm certainly not, and nobody else is either.
Over and out.

No Christopher you are not a heretic. But you are missing the point I made.

Sure, history is fascinating. I love the modern re-enactments on TV documentaries of historical scenes. The most recent one I watched was on the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, especially with regard to her [URL=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnjGSLvl7Po]]]spymaster network[/URL], who had their work cut out preventing the Roman Catholics from killing her and taking over England. It was most helpful to watch and to see God at work to keep England Protestant. Even when King James I took the throne, there was a huge plot to blow him up along with all the parliament gathered together, by those pesky Catholics again.

But a museum generally holds articles which have been superceded, because they are now obsolete.

By all means have a display of Bibles, from the oldest to the youngest, but NOT in a museum, please. Do you see, bro?

"People" tend to think that a religious exhibit should focus on religion. That would be like an Muslim exhibit focusing on fashion. When you put yourself out there with a Bible-based exhibit, you are expected to stick with the Bible. Just my thinking, but I might be out to lunch as usual.

Bravo! I love the Bible, hv several, read it every day for my spiritual food & began when very young. Had a mother who raised us on the book of Proverbs & the Gospels. It has bn a light unto my feet & a lamp to my pathway my entire life. Love it & distribute them to any one who wants one.

I'm not too sure about this. Modern man is quite happy to look at historical religion, because he believes that we have come a long way since those times, and now know better. God, if he ever existed at all, held sway in mens' minds when they were unenlightened, but now we have the internet and good, atheistical colleges, we no longer believe in such primitive ideas and ideologies. A museum can add support to such way of thinking. The remnants of RCC abbeys in the UK (now just crumbling ruins) are a testimony to just how popular a tourist destination they are.

Instead of a museum of Bibles, I would prefer to see biblically literate ordinary Christians open their homes to teach the present-day reality of God's word to "modern man" to show him his lost estate and the remedy of God's redemption in Christ Jesus, who came into the world to save sinners from every generation and every land, right up until his second advent, when the door of grace will be shut.

Probably written by an Arab Muslim? I don't mind the Christian emphasis of the museum, but when somebody other than Trump gets in there might be some mention of it to the board of directors of the Museum from the government.
Dalia Hatuqa wrote:
The near-exclusion of Islam contradicts the museum’s claims about inclusivity and non-denominationalism. The prominence of evangelical Christians on the museum’s board and its initial mission statement to “inspire confidence in the absolute authority and reliability of the Bible” also lend credence to criticism that its message is not purely educational, as Green now claims.

“For all of the changes that the museum has made from day one until the present, the story [Green] wants to tell has never changed,” said Baden, the Yale professor. “And that story does not include Islam—or Mormonism or Eastern Orthodoxy.”

This report is heartening. There remain enough people interested in the Christian religion to visit this museum at the reported rate of more than a million visitors per year. Perhaps it will open a door to actually reading the Bible and coming to saving faith and repentance unto life.
