King James on Embassy Row
Passages, a remarkable Bible exhibition that premiered at Washington D.C.'s Vatican Embassy, brought together church and political leaders to celebrate the King James Bible at 400. Co-sponsored by American Bible Society and the Green Family, the opening event in March shined a light on one of the newest and most exciting collections of rare Scriptures in the world, previewing selections of a larger exhibition now on view at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.
Archbishop Pietro Sambi, Pope Benedict XVI's Ambassador to the United States and official host of this gathering, captured this event well. “In visiting this exhibit, one does not merely see an exceptional display of books. One, in fact, senses deeply the letter of love, which God has written to each human being, down through the ages, offering the hope of his promises and the mercy of his redemption in Jesus Christ.”
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
