Passages: An Exhibit of Rare Biblical Artifacts at the OKC Museum of Art

Celebrate the 400-year anniversary of the King James Bible by treating yourself to this exhibit! Passages, a 14,000 square-foot interactive experience, contains some of the most rare and beautiful historical items in the world including a Dead Sea Scroll text, a portion of the Gutenberg Bible, many first editions of the English Bible, and over 300 Judeo-Christian artifacts spanning the last 2000 years.

To give you an idea of the scale and scope of this exhibit, a portion of it will be on display later this year at St. Peter’s Square at Vatican City in Rome. So if you’re able to see it while it’s in your own backyard, I would!

Ticket prices vary, but with a group of 15 or more, there’s a discount: adults – $18 per person instead of the normal $25, adults 62+ – $16.50 instead of $20, and kids ages 6-18 – $10 rather than $15. Kids 5 and under get in free. If just two or three of our families decided to go, we’d only need a few more bodies to qualify.

The exhibit is up through mid October, so if we planned on something in late September/early October close to Sukkot, everyone’s schedule would likely be more open, and we’d have time to save for it. In addition, because of the nature of this exhibit, the congregation (per a verbal vote of the financial committee) could make some type of contribution toward admission fees, if necessary. There is also the possibility – as yet unverified – that we might be able to take a church bus.

So anybody interested in attending should contact me (Julie) @ 580-622-6869, juliefranksmurray@gmail.com, or at a meeting, and I’ll start organizing a group event.

The museum is open every day from 10:00am-7:00pm. They stay open until 9:00pm on Thursday. Call or surf for more info: 405-236-3100 or www.ExplorePassages.com.
