Sunday afternoon Carol and I ventured into Boston to visit the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit at the Museum of Science. It was fascinating to see biblical history come alive. I found myself thinking through parts of the Old Testament Walk Thru during portions of the presentation. Great afternoon. I was able to take a few pictures. Unfortunately, the most interesting part, the scrolls themselves, is in a section where no photography is allowed.
I found one thing highly ironic–towards the end of the exhibit is a place called, “The Ten Words” (The Ten Commandments). You can push a button (1-10) and that commandment will be displayed on the screen while a voice reads the words. At the same time that the commandment, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” is being spoken, one person’s cell phone rings (cell phones were to be silenced at the beginning of the exhibit), the person answered and carried on a conversation in front of the display. Hmmm.
