12 Oct UVF Experiences the Bible Museum
On Saturday, September 30th, UVF students woke up early, filled up some vans, and headed out for Washington, D.C. to spend the day at the Bible Museum! There, students were able to see, firsthand, Biblical stories brought to life and dive into the history and cultural context of the the Bible. Starting from the top floor overlooking D.C., working their way down through the museum, each student was able to experience both the Old and New Testament in a new light. One student who attended described his experience as incredibly impactful. “The Old Testament experience told a deeper story to me than any other exhibit did. It taught me that even in God’s plan to redeem us, there were times where it looked like it wouldn’t take place, but He always made a way to save us.” – Victor Elveus
The Bible museum trip also brought awareness to the needs of those around us, as described by one student who went. “My favorite exhibit was the Hebrew Bible Exhibit. I loved the way that it combined animation, experience, and storytelling and allowed you to interact with the Old Testament. The other exhibit that really impacted me was the exhibit that showed all the languages that have no access to the Bible. It broke my heart to see all the people who have no access to the Gospel or only part of the Gospel.” – Makaiah Pieart
Much was experienced and learned through the time spent browsing the floors of the Bible Museum, and we are so grateful to the New Jersey Ministry Network and Bread of Life Church who made this trip a possibility!
