In an intimate corner of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, John Wesley Iliff Society donors were treated to a special presentation on the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibition (May 22, 2018). The more than 70 donors who attended the presentation heard from faculty panelists Pamela Eisenbaum, Alison Schofield, Amy Erickson, Mark George, and Eric Smith who provided entertaining and thoughtful insights about the ways the Dead Sea Scrolls informs readings of the Bible in the modern world.
Armed with the interpretations and perspectives from the Iliff faculty, the donors were treated to the once-in-a-lifetime experience to see these oldest-known biblical documents and the hundreds of ancient artifacts. Denver is the last stop for the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibition following its premiere at Discovery Times Square in New York City in 2011.
The John Wesley Iliff Society recognizes donors who support Iliff annually with a gift of $1,000 or more.
