THE Christadelphian Church held two bible exhibitions in Llanelli on Friday (Aug 31).

A general history exhibition took place at the Llanelli Library while a more Welsh focussed public display was held at their community church on Heol Goffa.

The bible consists of 66 books and covers many different subjects in all literacy forms including poetry and prose.

The aim of the exhibition was to show viewers the Bible’s place in history and how it has survived. It also accurately describes past events.

Most panels had an audio guide allowing listeners to hear key facts and information regarding each artefact.

Stories covered included Mary Jones, who in 1800 walked 25 miles barefoot across rugged, mountainous country simply to buy a Bible from the Reverend Thomas Charles of Bala. The trip was to have a lasting effect throughout the world.

Other stories include the English and Welsh Bible and the history of the book.

Jamie Palmer of the Llanelli Christadelphians

Speaking to Llanelli Online, Jamie Palmer said: “We encourage people to use the bible as a basis for morality.

“What we are trying to do is to help people read it and understand it. All of it is relevant.”

The name “Christadelphian” means brothers and sisters in Christ. They share their beliefs of Jesus and the apostles, as they are based solely on what the Bible teaches.
