As Saddleback explains on its website, the goal of the Museum is to “bring the Bible to life in a place where its grand history can be tangibly displayed for all to see.”

The event at the California megachurch will include a 75 minute presentation alongside a viewing of some of the selected artifacts.

While Warren did not reveal which artifacts will be on display, the museum’s collection includes tablets dating from the time of Abraham; to Dead Sea Scroll fragments; biblical papyri and manuscripts; Torah scrolls, and rare printed Bibles.

Cary Summers, president of the Museum of the Bible, told The Christian Post in an interview last year that once completed, the Museum will host tour groups from public and private schools throughout the world.

“Primarily private school groups and homeschoolers, but also we’ve entertained numerous universities throughout the world as we’ve traveled,” said Summers. “Some, especially overseas, public and private, have come.”
