The Dead Sea Scrolls to the Bible in America

My wife and daughter and I FINALLY made it over to Providence Place in High Point today to see the exhibit The Dead Sea Scrolls to the Bible in America. We were not disappointed. It is incredible to see first-hand how God has protected and preserved His Word through the centuries. And to hear what great sacrifices men have made to make sure you and I can read and study the Bible in our own language makes you . . . not want to take that privilege for granted.

The exhibit, which opened in mid-January and has been held over twice, continues to draw in thousands of visitors. According to yesterday's Greensboro News & Record, 50,000 people have visited the exhibit over 87 days. But time is running out if you want to see it for yourself, and if you live near High Point, I highly recommend that you do. The exhibit, which is open 10 a.m.–9 p.m., Monday–Saturday, and noon–6 p.m., Sundays, ends its North Carolina run next Sunday, April 10. It heads next to Paducah, Kentucky, and will be in Spartanburg, South Carolina, this fall.

While we were there we were very fortunate to meet and talk with three of the curators, Dr. Craig Lampe, Lee Biondi and Joel Lampe, who were all very friendly and accommodating to visitors. I asked Dr. Lampe, who operates The Bible Museum in Arizona, if many skeptics had been through the exhibit and later convinced and convicted with what they saw. He said it has happened many, many times, and that it is hard for them to not to believe with all of the hard evidence right there in front of them.
