Come and see one of the greatest archaeological discoveries from the land of the Bible in recent
years. The Magdala Stone was discovered when archaeologists uncovered the biblical village of
Magdala, the hometown of Mary Magdalene, on the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee. From the
time of Jesus and his ministry, The Magdala Stone was in a place of prominence within the synagogue.
This beautiful stone is carved with depictions of the Temple from the time of Christ and represents
the oldest depiction of the menorah that has been discovered, pre-dating Titus’ Arch in Rome which
depicts the fall of Jerusalem in 70 A.D.
Along with the Magdala Stone, many other biblical artifacts will be featured from the Patriarchal period (Bronze Age), the period of the Kings (Iron Age) and the time of Christ (the early Roman period) that will bring to life some of the most memorable stories of Scripture.
As part of the living proof experience, some of the earliest English Bibles nearly 500 years old will be on display including the 1535 Coverdale Bible, a first edition 1611 King James Bible and the Bishop’s Bible.
The event is hosted by former Jerusalem resident and biblical scholar, Scott Fenton, Ph.D. and will feature a special live Skype presentation from Father Eamon Kelly of Magdala, Israel and the Pontifical Institute Notre Dame of Jerusalem Center.
Come and see; go and tell: this is living proof!
The biblical experience happens on the campus of Beth Sar Shalom, 5701 W. Park Blvd. Plano, TX 75093, on Saturday morning, August 19th at 10:30 a.m.
