Westwood Christian Fellowship Pastor Curtis Tucker welcomed the "Enduring Word Museum,” a traveling Bible museum that has two separate exhibits that travel from coast-to-coast.
“Our purpose is to affirm the Bible as the true Word of God and for people to trust their Bible and to read their Bibles so God can speak to them through its pages allowing Him to guide their lives,' said John Sliffe, curator. “We want people to understand the Bible they have is accurate, trustworthy and came to them through a heavy price of sacrifice by people who understood the importance of having a Bible in their common language.”
Through the use of artifacts that span 5,000 years the exhibit answer peoples’ questions about how the Bible was created and compiled for their use today.
“All of the artifacts are true, authentic pieces of history that tell the story of the Bible,” Sliffe added. “To be clear we do not get into theology, doctrine or political issues. We simply answer the questions people have regarding how the Bible came into existence to affirm the Bibles authenticity and authority.”
Never miss a local story.
“It truly is an amazing exhibit,” Tucker said. “To me the most impressive part is the replica of the Gutenberg printing press and realizing the time and effort that was required in order for common people to be able to read the printed word.”
Tucker said he believes everyone who views the artifacts and information contained in the museum will walk away extremely impressed and more knowledgeable about the Bible and the history of communication and technology which are so often take for granted.
The exhibit operate through the gracious gifts and offerings of the people who benefit from seeing the exhibit and want to see it continue to positively impact other people’s lives.
