Going back via the British Museum

We are in London this Sunday morning, our first stop on the way back to the U.S.  We are leaving our hotel in a few minutes to worship with a group of Christians here.

Tomorrow we will spend a large part of the day at the British Museum. This museum houses many Bible-related artifacts, along with a plethora of other historical treasures.  There is currently a special exhibit titled Babylon: Myth and Reality, which should be quite interesting. Babylon is a major player in the Bible, and is spoken of long after its fall (i.e. Revelation). I have been to the British Museum before, but my photos are relatively few. I use photos of the artifacts in many of my classes and lessons, so I plan to fill up my camera memory tomorrow. (Hopefully a few may even turn out well!)

We fly the rest of the way home Tuesday morning.

    I am insanely jealous right now. I would love to live in the British Museum.

    Perhaps there is a way. If you can make yourself a rare, precious antiquity (and you’ve definitely accomplished the first two of those prerequisites), you just might pull it off.
