Welcome to the Virtual Bible Museum!
Since 1998, this award-winning web museum and Christian archive has spread a love for God's Word and provide valuable resources on the Bible, its history, and its influence on the arts and humanities. Now at its new home at AncientPage.com, the Virtual Bible Museum is expanding with new features and sections.
The Bible is the most extraordinary work of literature in all of history. It has been published, sold, and translated more than any other work, and has impacted lives, nations, and societies for centuries. Christians have given their lives- and even suffered torturous deaths- to preserve the Bible and to share it with others. We invite you once again to Experience the Bible!
Is the Bible relevant for today?
Billy Graham answers:
Currently, there are two major sections to the museum: the History of the Bible section and the Christian Art section, with a museum store coming soon. We appreciate your feedback, and invite you to help us spread a love for the Bible by adding a link or sharing this site with a friend.
See the world's rarest and most beautiful Bibles and learn how the Bible was translated over the centuries. Start with the earliest Hebrew Torah Scrolls and papyri of Greek manuscripts. Learn about the lives of Reformation martyrs who struggled against great odds and gave their lives to translate the Word of God into the languages of the common people: men like John Wycliffe, Martin Luther, and William Tyndale. Find out how the King James Authorized Version came into existence, as well as the Latin Vulgate, Textus Receptus, and the first Bibles in America.
From the first century Anno Domini, throughout the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and into modern times, Christianity and Biblical themes have played a pivotal role in art, culture, and aesthetic life. In the "Christian Influence in Art" exhibits, the works of Michelangelo, Da Vinci, and many others are featured from museums all over the world.
In our first "Devotions in Art" exhibit, a unique presentation of seven groupings illustrate different themes of Rembrandt's biblical works, and are presented with Scripture references for reading, meditation, and devotion.
Tour the museum using the frame on the left to go to major sections. You can also use the "Next" button at the bottom right corner of each page to navigate within the sections.
