The Great Bibleland Dig

Ever wonder who wrote the Bible? When it was written down? Did you know the Bible was the first book ever printed mechanically? That it has been translated into more than 2,000 languages? What makes it so special? These are some of the questions we explored at our week-long Vacation Adventure held August 20-24. Twenty five kids and leaders gathered each morning for singing, games and crafts. We met the entertaining Dr. Doug Treasures, and found out all about what an archaeologist (that’s someone who digs in places where people lived long ago) does. Then we got to try our hand at being an archaeologist too by digging in our survey “grid” to find objects that helped us explore the Bible, and the times it was written in. It was a great week of learning and making new friends!
