Rare Bible Display Case in the Reference Room

(The Pastor Susanne Wilczek Memorial Display Case)

The Styberg Library invites you to come view the new display of two books from The Yi Family Bible Room. Centering on Jesus and the events that took place in the Garden of Gethsemane, we are displaying an engraving of the Garden from Picturesque Palestine, Sinai and Egypt, edited by Colonel Wilson, assisted by the most eminent Palestine explorers (New York: D. Appleton & Co., Publishers, 1881). The biblical text of Jesus in the Garden is shown in the second volume on display, which is Thomas Jefferson’s The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth: Extracted Textually from the Gospels in Greek, Latin, French, and English (a photolithographic copy of the original volume, frequently referred to as the “Jefferson Bible,” which is now in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.)
