During several months this spring and summer, Oklahoma City residents will have a rare opportunity to learn more about the Bible’s origins, history and impact. A free lecture series, hosted by Museum of the Bible, will feature manuscript experts and university scholars.

“We are excited to bring leading biblical thinkers from Oklahoma, Museum of the Bible and around the world to our community as part of our mission to engage all people with the Bible through world-class scholarship,” said David Trobisch, Th.D., Museum of the Bible’s collection director, who will open the series on April 9 with a lecture exploring mysteries of the Bible’s compilation. “We are inviting Oklahomans to join local and international experts for an up-close and scholarly look at the Bible’s history, narrative and impact.”

 A sold-out, Museum of the Bible-sponsored lecture series in 2011 brought renowned academics to its Passages exhibit at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. Since then, the museum has sponsored lecture series in six U.S. cities, including Atlanta; Charlotte, North Carolina; Colorado Springs, Colorado; Springfield, Missouri; Santa Clarita, California; and also at the Vatican in Rome.
