Let’s talk about ancients!
Last weekend, one of the things we did during our Michigan weekend getaway was to check out the Horn Archaeological Museum in the campus of Andrews University. What’s so unique and neat about this museum is that the antiques in this archaeological place aren’t explained based on evolution but in Creation. Yes, being a Seventh-day Adventist institution, the displays in this museum were biblical. It was indeed so fascinating to see the real stuff from the Bible times, just like a scroll and an ossuary.
Here’s what I got from that tour:
The Torah Scroll it is as mentioned in the book of Deuteronomy 4:2. Amazing, eh?
And here’s an ossuary:
An ossuary is a chest, building, well, or site made to serve as the final resting place of human skeletal remains. They are frequently used where burial space is scarce. A body is first buried in a temporary grave, then after some years the skeletal remains are removed and placed in an ossuary. The greatly reduced space taken up by an ossuary means that it is possible to store the remains of many more people in a single tomb than if the original coffins were left as is.
I must say I was so in awe with that visit to the Horn Archaeological Museum. It was like journeying Jerusalem and most of the places in the Old Testament literally!
Triz found it so cool, too, to be able to see the real glimpses of what she only read from the Bible. Yes, it was a cool visit for us indeed!
