LUMC's Stories from Scripture

LUMC's Stories from Scripture Stories from Scripture is set-up with a visitor’s center experience in mind. This is for you if you have an open mind to Scripture.

It is self-guided with exhibits selected to tell the story for adults and interactive elements for kids. This is for you if you’re curious and don’t know where to begin. This is for you if you are willing to accept that Renaissance painters interpreted the stories through the lens of their cultures. This is for you if you are willing to accept that we have often interpreted the stories through the

lens of our culture, and maybe we need to look again. This is for you if you if you want to bring family or friends to have a good discussion and wrestle with what the stories meant for the original hearers and might mean for you today. This is for you if you if you want to come alone to sit and reflect. This is for you if you want your kids to know these stories and have the freedom to wrestle with them but have realized that they don’t. This is for you if you want to be supportive of the church trying new things.

A long time ago, in a land far, far away…so long ago, it may as well have been another galaxy,

Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon, laid siege on Jerusalem. He destroyed the city and the temple, bound Zedekiah, King of Judah and took him to Babylon. So, the Jewish people went into captivity, away from her land.

The people of Judah feared they faced extinction through assimilation, as they had seen in their kinspeople in the Northern Kingdom of Israel. They sought to retain their identity and their hope by passing on the stories of their ancestors.

The old stories were a reminder that they were a chosen people. They were chosen by God to live differently than other nations. They were chosen for a purpose: so that all the world would be blessed through them.

Someday, God would come and save them. God would keep his promise to save the world through them. Their hope lay in the stories of the past.

Our hope is in those stories, too.
