Chesterfield Bible Exhibition

Monday, 5 September 2011 - Friday, 9 September 2011
Location: Eastwood Hall (United Reform Church), Rose Hill, Chesterfield Town Centre, United Kingdom
Organisation: Chesterfield Christadelphian Church
Topic: Bible


Chesterfield Christadelphians are bringing this fascinating exhibition to Chesterfield to mark the 400th anniversary of the printing of the King James translation of the Bible.

Informative display panels help interpret the exhibits, which show how the Bible has survived down the centuries to reach us today. Exhibits include ancient documents including early examples of printed bibles in old English and old Hebrew scrolls. These documents chart the way the Bible was first recorded and, relatively recently, made available in everyday language.

There are a large number of archaeological exhibits on show which confirm the historical accuracy of huge amounts of bible detail. There are sections illustrating how prophesies in the bible foretold events, hundreds or even thousands of years before they happened.

There are interesting quizzes for different ages of children to complete and interactive panels with mini quizzes for young and old to enjoy.

The exhibition shows the remarkable facts about the history of the Bible in an interesting way and we think it goes on to show that the Bible still has a lot to teach us in the 21st Century. Whether you’re interested in the literary aspects, archaeology or you’re simply curious about the Bible’s relevance today, the exhibition will be really interesting.
