Explore Museum of the Bible’s current exhibits for a firsthand look at the global influence and history of the Bible!
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.
In a new “Personal Stories” exhibit, Museum of the Bible will explore the life and martyrdom of Watchman Nee, recognized by Christianity Today magazine as one of the most influential Christians of the twentieth century. Watchman Nee founded the “Local Church” movement in China, the first native Christian movement in the country.
Come explore the life and legacy of Watchman Nee. The exhibit is included with admission.
