Prior to viewing the exhibit on the 24th we will have a pre-viewing event at New Hope on Sunday March 18,2018 for an hour following Sunday Service. We will have experts on hand to discuss what you'll see at the exhibit. On Saturday April 7, 2018 we will host at event at New Hope with members from other community groups to discuss the exhibit and what it means to them.
Dead Sea Scrolls, the exhibition that has captivated millions around the world, opens at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science on March 16. The regional premiere of this exhibition is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see authentic Dead Sea Scrolls, ancient manuscripts that include the oldest known biblical documents dating back over 2,000 years. The scrolls will be dramatically presented within a massive exhibit case along with the full English translations. In addition, more than 500 artifacts from the ancient Middle East will immerse guests in historic traditions and beliefs that continue to impact world cultures today. The authentic objects include inscriptions and seals, weapons, stone carvings, terra cotta figurines, remains of religious symbols, coins, shoes, textiles, mosaics, ceramics, jewelry, and a threeton stone from the Western Wall in Jerusalem, believed to have fallen in 70 CE.
