Explore Museum of the Bible’s current exhibits for a firsthand look at the global influence and history of the Bible!
While an outright ban on the Bible never existed in the USSR during the Cold War, many religions, and religious practices, were essentially forced out of public life by the state. Despite this opposition, Ken, and many others, believed that anyone who wanted a copy of the Bible should have one; so they set out to bring Bibles across the border. This exhibit is about his story — a tale of an ordinary man who did extraordinary things to share the Bible with the world.
Stations of the Cross is an interactive and spiritual art experience, based in a long tradition of the church, commemorating fourteen events from the last hours of Jesus’s life. Intended as an art form to portray the story in more meaningful ways, the fourteen stages offer a profound platform for meditation, education, and prayer.
