Museum of the Bible
400 4th St. SW, Washington, DC 20024 - United States
For centuries, people have turned to the Bible for comfort, instruction, inspiration, and hope. But what about adventure, intrigue, entertainment, and FUN? Museum of the Bible invites you to experience the Bible in a whole new way. Inside, you can walk on dry land through the Red Sea, wander the streets of a first-century village, and see rare artifacts from the Vatican and Israel. Located just a few blocks off the National Mall in Washington, DC, we invite you to come see for yourself. What’s in it will surprise you!
For a limited time only:
Magna Carta: Tyranny. Justice. Liberty.
The story of the Magna Carta is the story of the struggle for liberty. In this special exhibition, the role of the Bible and the English Church in that struggle will be traced from the creation of the Magna Carta in the thirteenth century to the present day. The Bible has much to say about rulers and ruling justly, such as Isaiah 10:1, “Woe unto those who make unjust laws,” or Psalm 2:10–11, “Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.” Verses like these and others show the Bible’s position on justice, and have been discussed and debated time and again over the centuries by both rulers and the ruled.
