An enthusiastic group of 35 members from Melawati Chinese Methodist Church paid a much-awaited visit to STM where a guided tour to view part of our collection of biblical and archaeology replicas was carried out on 7 April, 2018. Hosted by the Centre for Bible Engagement, the session ran from 9:30am to 12:30pm. Dr Elaine Goh was invited to speak on the connection between some archaeological findings and the Bible, as well as the significance of these findings to the Christian faith.
Dr Elaine Goh gave a highly engaging and informative lecture for the first hour of the visit. This was then followed by a series of lectures given by five STM students–Ang Yeaw Meng, Kelly Oon, Gavin Yang, Kevin Chew and Tee Heng Kiat. They provided further explanation on some of replicas in our collection to the visitors.
The guided tour was then divided into five small groups where the visitors could view and be given information on some of the significant archaeological replicas in our collection—the Rosetta Stone, Cyrus Cylinder, Dead Sea Scrolls, Gilgamesh Tablet (Flood Tablet #11), and the Gentile Prohibition Inscription.
