Stories of the Bible

Combining impeccable scholarship with thrilling showmanship

Stories of the Bible is an innovative exhibition that sets a new benchmark for experiential storytelling. Developed in collaboration with a diverse team of international scholars and rabbis, it combines impeccable scholarship with thrilling showmanship. The Hebrew Bible Experience begins with what appears to be a standard presentation about an ancient scroll – until the narrator invites guests to step inside the story. A series of unique immersive media moments unfold, taking guests on a journey through the story of a people and their relationship with one God.

After leaving the Hebrew Bible Experience, guests enter a compelling 180-degree cinematic odyssey through the 27 books and letters that comprise the New Testament. Told through a series of brief encounters with characters throughout the book, this experience brings alive the story of Jesus of Nazareth and the formation of the early church.

Overview

Stories of the Bible does more than educate guests about the Bible. It transforms an historical text into a living tapestry of unforgettable, life-changing narratives that speak to guests of all faiths and no faith tradition.

Challenge

Guests come to the Museum of the Bible with their own personal narrative of the stories, characters and teachings found in the Bible. How could BRC respect the sacred nature of the texts and yet make these stories universally accessible, vital, and vivid for all guests? How could BRC entice them to take a fresh look at stories they think they already know?

Solution

BRC bypassed traditional modes of storytelling and created a series of immersive art installations, theatrical rooms, and unique media moments that take guests on an immersive journey through the story of a family of people and their relationship with one God.

Key learnings

With a text as complex and influential as the Bible, there was little room for dramatic license. The BRC team worked very closely with a diverse team of international scholars, archeologists, and rabbis, and used the most modern storytelling tools and special effects to bring these ancient stories to life.
