The Korean Bible Society opened a small Bible museum called “Bible Exhibition Hall” in 1995 as part of our centennary commemoration projects.
The Hall exhibits about 80 old and historic Scripture manuscripts and Scriptures in about 750 languages of the world. Guided tours around the Bible Exhibition Hall are offered for different groups: adults, university students, teens, and kindergarten and elementary school children.
Items on exhibit include:
· Historic Scripture Manuscripts such as the ‘Dead Sea Scrolls’, ‘Leningrad Codex’ and other scrolls and papyrus replicas of Hebrew and Greek Scriptures
·Replicas and printed copies of ancient translations in various languages such as the Gutenberg 42 line Bible (the world’s first printed Bible), ‘Wycliffe New Testament’ (the first Scripture in English), ‘King James Bible’, ‘Luther Bible’, and etc
· Foreign language translations that had direct/indirect influence on the Korean Bible translation
· Korean Bibles – from the very first Scripture to present
· Genealogy of Korean, English, and German Bible translations
· Scriptures produced by the Korean Bible Society and supplied overseas (about 1,500 editions in 750 languages)
For group visitors, we offer an introduction to the ministry of the Korean Bible Society, and guided tour around the Bible Exhibition Hall.
