In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and conversations on racial equality in America, Museum of the Bible has launched a new museum theme: “Bible and Healing.” This theme explores how Scripture has influenced both the medical field and social justice movements and will be highlighted by exhibits and displays throughout the museum, which is among the first to reopen in Washington, D.C.

“People around the world and across our country have suffered immensely these past few months,” said Harry Hargrave, CEO of Museum of the Bible. “Our ‘Bible and Healing’ theme speaks to that suffering. Scripture can be a source of great comfort and healing, and we hope to share that with our visitors.”

One of the museum’s notable “Bible and Healing” exhibits includes an exploration of the relationship between Scripture and the medical profession called “Healthcare and the Bible.” Visitors can also view healthcare texts such as John Wesley’s “Primitive Physick” (1747), Florence Nightingale’s “Notes on Nursing” (1859) and Julius Preuss’ “Biblical and Talmudic Medicine” (1911). This exhibit invites visitors to learn more about the biblical roots of modern medicine, what inspires so many to advance healthcare around the world and how the Bible offers hope in difficult times.
