Christians in Sierra Leone will soon host an exhibition conference on the first original King James Version Bible and other 2,000 years old artefacts in Freetown.
The exhibition will take place on 23-24 September this year at the Miatta Conference Hall to celebrate the 400 years of translation of the Bible by King James from the Greek language, the Dead Sea Scrolls and others.
This information was made available to the press by the Communications Officer of the Bible Society Mr. Raymond Jarrett at their office in Freetown over the weekend.
Mr. Jarrett disclosed that few countries were selected for the exhibition including Nigeria, Liberia Ghana and Sierra Leone.
He said participants will view the King James Version Bible and other historical artefacts that have never been seen before by many Christians. According to him Christians have already displayed the items in some parts of Nigeria and Sierra Leone will be next.
The facilitators from the West Africa Theological Seminar and the Bible Society of Nigeria will come along with the items and one of the world leading experts in Bible antiquities, Dr. Scott Carroll will explain and gives lecture at the showcase conference.
Reverend Tamba Mbayo of the Bible Society informed that Dr. Scott Carroll is the Director of The Green Collection with over 40,000 items. Reverend Mbayo told the press that Dr. Scott Carroll has mastered 13 ancient languages and is well known for extensive Bible Studies, History, Bible Manuscripts and ancient background.
All Christians and members in Sierra Leone are encouraged to go and listen to the lectures of Dr. Carroll and also view for themselves the ancient artefacts. For more details, contact Bible Societies in various churches.
