We are attempting to revamp an old tool used for Gospel Proclamation – the Bible Exhibition. In the old days, this exhibition travelled around the country and had a very positive effect in terms of building comrade with the members who manned it, as well as those who were introduced to the Christadelphians via this interactive means. The stands have rusted (and they were LARGE) – TRUCKS were used to cart this effort around and many ‘bits’ have been lost. To try streamline the current effort, hollow core doors (.85m X 2.1m) are painted and hinged together to form cubicles in which various artefacts are displayed or hung. It has taken shape more as a visual journey through the Bible, starting at Genesis and (God willing) working through to Revelation. There will be 66 panels in total. Here are some efforts so far:
In the Beginning
Tower of Babel/Promises to Abraham (Genesis). Additions to the panels include cuneiform tablets (replica’s), scrolls and books.
Incomplete Egyptian panel showing the Book of the Dead ( a VERY old copy) and a pot made from Egyptian paste (material from which the scarab beetles were moulded).
Moses and the parting of the Red Sea (2 panels) (Book of Exodus)
Fall of Jericho and Sampson (Books of Joshua and Judges)
The Exhibition also contains a reasonable quantity of very old Bibles – its remarkable to be able to handle these old volumes – the journey of the Bible, to reach us today is truly remarkable.
