Jerusalem Chamber

Mack Library, campus of Bob Jones University

For adults and students (6th-12th grade)

Step back into the pages of Bible translation history by visiting our own Jerusalem Chamber, a replica of the famous fourteenth-century room in Westminster Abbey. This chamber is where the commissioned men convened to write the King James Version of the Bible. Here you will discover a treasure of rare Bibles, the very translations that inspired the Protestant Reformation. The collection includes John Wycliffe’s New Testament, an original 1608 edition of the Geneva Bible, a 1611 edition of the KJV, and a rare copy of Martin Luther’s 1522 German translation.

Tour is available beginning September 1.

Gustafson Fine Arts Center, campus of Bob Jones University

For adults and students (6th-12th grade)

This focus exhibition features paintings from M&G’s internationally respected Old Master collection.  Tour the exhibit and take a closer look at the man, Martin Luther by understanding more about his life’s circumstances in the 1500s—a plague circling Europe, the scarcity and inaccessibility of books, the normalcy of illiteracy, and the exacting authority of church and state. Luther’s life journey reminds us that ordinary people can be used by God to inspire extraordinary and enduring change.

Tour is available beginning September 1.
