Through Gates of Splendor: The Elisabeth Elliot Story
March 30, 2023 – January 28, 2024
In a new “Personal Stories” exhibit, Museum of the Bible explores the life of Christian missionary Elisabeth Elliot. In 1958, Elisabeth Elliot returned to the Ecuadorian rainforest to live with the tribe who had killed her husband only two years earlier. Her choice to forgive, rather than retaliate, sparked a change in the Waodäni, who left behind a cycle of violence to embrace a life of love. Elliot’s remarkable story rippled across the globe, inspiring millions to serve God through missions. Come explore the life and legacy of Elisabeth Elliot.

Scripture and Science: Our Universe, Ourselves, Our Place
January 20, 2023 – January 15, 2024
This exhibition will bust the myth that science and biblical faith have been diametrically opposed to each other throughout history and will invite people to discover the Bible’s impact on the scientific world. In fact, the Bible encouraged curiosity. Its big ideas provided a framework for the way some of the greatest philosophers, scholars, and scientists thought about their work and understood their discoveries. The Bible certainly provoked intense debate at times, but far from being an obstacle to scientific progress, biblical theology actually played an important role in the development of science and our understanding of the world around us.
