Ancient Manuscripts Displayed in Berlin’s Famous Museum Island

Berlin’s Museum Island Hosts Thousands of Unique Artifacts

It’s one thing to read the Bible or Torah, but it’s a completely different experience altogether to have an up close and personal look at the original Hebrew and Egyptian manuscripts that we’ve become so familiar with. Embark on a Christian Bible study tour and see these original texts.

The Berlin Papyrus Collection is a sight to see. Dubbed the oldest and largest in Germany and one of the largest document collections in the world, this collection is the product of donations and excavations from various Egyptian locations. The collection not only showcases Egyptian work, but also Latin, Persian, Arabic, Syrian and Ethiopian texts. These literary works and spiritual texts provide great insight into Egyptian life.

The Egyptian museum is one of many stopping points along the way through Museum Island in Berlin. The collection is situated next to the Pergamon museum, one of the most popular attractions in the city. Known best for its large array of archaeological findings, it is a prime location on our tours. The Egyptian museum is located in the Neues Museum, which also houses the Museum of pre- and early-history, as well as, selected objects from the antiquities museum. Travelers will have the opportunity to visit these museums, among many others located in Berlin, on the Reformation Tour with Dr. Erwin Lutzer.

The Reformation Tour is scheduled for May 31st – June 12th, 2016. Guests will have the opportunity to spend almost two weeks traveling around Germany and Switzerland as Dr. Lutzer traces the rise and fall of Hitler in Nazi Germany while emphasizing the importance of Martin Luther.
