The public is invited to an Opening Celebration on Thursday, Sept. 26, as Carson-Newman prepares to open The Saint John’s Bible Exhibit.

Carson-Newman University will join a limited number of institutions world-wide to house a rare, full-size artistic reproduction of The Saint John’s Bible, the first handwritten and illuminated Bible in 500 years. Smithsonian Magazine has called the work “One of the extraordinary undertakings of our time.”

The opening event will be held at Jefferson City’s First Baptist Church at 7 p.m. The occasion will feature Tim Ternes, director of The Saint John’s Bible at the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library in Collegeville, Minnesota, as he presents an in-depth look into the 12-year historic project and its results. A pre-event viewing of the Bible will be from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m.

Beginning Sept. 27, the exhibit is open to the public.  Carson-Newman will house all seven volumes of the Heritage Edition of the Saint John’s Bible through Oct. 23.  Two volumes, the Pentateuch along with Gospels & Acts, will remain on exhibit through Aug. 2014.
