St Columbanus Ballyholme to host The Bible Comes to Life exhibition

Friday 02 November 2018

At the end of November St Columbanus, Ballyholme will be the venue for a unique interactive exhibition exploring the life and culture of the world’s bestselling book. 

The Bible Comes to Life will bring together a rich collection of historic artefacts and models with a spectacular 3 metre by 2 metre recreation of the Jewish Temple at its centre. 

Other exhibits will include a scale model of the Desert Tabernacle with illustrative coverings, ritual furniture and animals and an array of Middle Eastern Clothing. 

The exhibition will be brought to life by costumed guides who will give in–character talks at each of six stations. Visitors will meet, among others, a shepherd, a tribal leader and a Middle Eastern bride. 

The Bible Comes to Life is a pre–Christmas treat for all ages and offers an opportunity to learn about Jewish life, culture and religion from the Hebrew Scriptures. It also places the roots of Christianity in their original and spiritual context.

Hundreds of local school children will be visiting the exhibition during the day and members of the public can enjoy the experience free of charge from Wednesday 28 – Friday 30 November from 6.30 pm–9.30 pm and on Saturday 1 December from 1.30 pm–5.00 pm.
