LAYTON — Alpine Church is inviting the public to explore two rare handwritten scrolls of Hebrew scriptures on the evening of Friday, March 16.
Both scrolls include the Hebrew Torah — the first five books of the Bible.
One scroll is 250 years old and is made from 100 calves. The other scroll, which originated in Yemen, is 500 years old, according to a news release from the church.
“For people who value the scriptures, this is a rare opportunity,” said Ross Anderson, teaching pastor at Alpine Church. “You might not have a chance to see and touch something like this again.”
The scrolls bring to life and aid appreciation of the history of the Bibles Christians have in their homes today, Anderson said.
The exhibit will be accompanied by a lecture titled “The Book that Changed the World: Bible Reliability and Relevance to Civilization,” presented by Corey Miller, president of Ratio Christi, according to the news release.
Ratio Christi, the exhibit sponsor, is a global movement that equips university students and faculty to give historical, philosophical and scientific reasons for following Jesus Christ, according to the news release.
The exhibit will open at 6:30 p.m., followed by the lecture at 7 p.m. The exhibit will be open until 9 p.m.
Attendance at the exhibit and accompanying lecture is free.
Alpine Church is located at 254 W 2675 N in Layton.
