We are excited to offer Pastors and Laity a new extension of our ministry.
Dr. Rick W. Jones wishes to provide an educational opportunity that allows people to see the development of the Holy scriptures over the span of 3500 years. His goal is to help others recognize that not only did God inspire the scriptures, but even through the untold number of various translation processes and in the varied media presentations of the text, He has perfectly preserved the scriptures.
Dr. Jones has lovingly and meticulously acquired facsimiles of the Dead Sea Scrolls, various Hebrew Torah Scrolls, Papyri Greek Texts, The Great Codex's, Latin Manuscripts, Gutenberg's Bible, Luther's Bible, and more. There are also numerous early English bibles from Wycliffe, Tyndale, the giant 1611 King James Bible, up to the modern twenty-first century English translations. The collection also includes an exact replica (cast in the same mold) of the Ten Commandments that Charlton Heston held in his hands as Moses in Cecil B. DeMille's Epic, "The Ten Commandments."
In using facsimiles and reproductions that demonstrate the various translations and editions, it is his goal to show that the Bible is truly an amazingly consistent document. The Holy Word of God, written down by approximately 40 different writers in 66 books of the Bible, over a span of 1500 years, in three different languages, all fit together like the pieces of a giant jigsaw puzzle. There is one continual theme throughout—God's plan of salvation from sin won for the whole world by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This consistency itself attests to the miracle of this book.
