The Bible: Written on the Wall

In 2004, a Princeton University professor began cataloging more than forty building sites on campus with inscriptions, many with biblical references, including, “And be ye not called masters, for only one is your master, Christ,” attributed to Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew.

On the entrance wall at the Harvard Law School Library is an inscription attributed to Saint Augustine in a reference to Isaiah 10:1: “An unjust law is no law at all.”

Above the entrance to UCLA’s Humanities Building are words from Psalm 119:18: “Open Thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of Thy law.” And stirring controversy in 2015 at the University of Florida, is the archway inscription leading to the new Business Education building, words of Micah 6:8: “Walk humbly with Your God.” Engage with the Bible—in its influence in every sphere!
