According to today’s e-mail update from the Grace College & Seminary publications office (firstname.lastname@example.org) several important documents are on loan from Grace’s Biblical and Ancient Manuscript Center in the Morgan Library for exhibit at The Discovery Place in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The Discovery Place is sponsoring a major exhibit February 17-May 29, entitled “The Dead Sea Scrolls.” Documents in the exhibit have been lent by Grace and by the Dead Sea Scrolls Foundation.
Dr. Brent Sandy (pictured here with Grace librarian Bill Darr), who chairs the Religious Studies Department at Grace College, says that nine documents have been borrowed from Grace for the exhibit. Among the documents are a 16th century Torah scroll, a Sauer Bible, the first German language Bible printed in North America (1776), and an original leaf from the first printing in 1611 of the King James Bible.
