Did you know that papyrus is actually a plant which is made into writing material? New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary has their own Bible and archaeology museum, and in the video we are shown several examples of the centuries old artifacts that the Seminary has collected.

In the video below, „From Papyrus to Print: A Journey through the History of the Bible” they explore how the Bible was written on papyrus and parchment, copied, preserved and ultimately printed in the language of common people. Ancient archaeological artifacts supplement the experience by offering a glimpse into daily life in biblical times.
