Billing itself as “the largest touring exhibit of sacred text and artifacts in history,” the From Abraham to Jesus includes more than 240 artifacts and a multimedia presentation. The traveling exhibit includes some Dead Sea Scrolls and the ossuary of Simon the Cyrene. I confess that some of the breathless wording turns me off, and my general impression is that this is something to take your Sunday School group to visit, but not your college class. Someone who visits can comment about their experience below. The first exhibit will be in Atlanta, beginning on September 15, then moving to Grand Rapids, Columbus, Nashville, Tulsa, Boston, Charlotte, Hampton Roads, Charleston, Mobile, Schaumburg (IL), Des Moines, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, San Jose, Dallas, and more in 2008.
