Museum Bible Tours Tour Reviews

This tour Enhanced my faith in the Bible’s reliability

This tour Enhanced my faith in the Bible's reliability. I personally enjoyed seeing the life Moses could have enjoyed, a life of pleasure, luxury and ease but he rather chose to be mistreated with God's people because he knew our life depends on Jehovah's approval. Another section of the tour was the impressive blocks the Israelites built. The one we saw at the museum still had fragments of straw, allowing me to see the validity of the bible accounts. Overall, everything, from the huge monuments of the Assyrians, Babylonians, Egyptians, Romans amongst other ruins have increased my love for Jehovah and have given more confidence that he will cause to become anything to protect his people. We will stand still and see Jehovah's salvation (2 Chronicles 20:17).

I throughly enjoyed the You Alone are the Most High Tour!

I throughly enjoyed the You Alone are the Most High Tour! It was fabulous! One point that was shared with the group by our tour guide was the fact the Jehovah is not a cruel or vindictive God. For example, according to the Exodus account Jehovah turned the Nile River into blood which was aimed against the Egyptians. However, the Egyptians were still able to obtain drinking water by digging around the Nile river. — Exodus 7:24. This was just one of the many beautiful gems that was shared with our group. The tour emphasized that Jehovah is the Most High over all the earth and those who submit to him will prosper and live and those who don’t will suffer and die. Thank you for providing such encouraging and faith-strengthening tours! Keep them coming!

I am a visual learner so that was just what I needed

I consider myself as a good student of the Bible, I love to do research. My memory is older and my ability to recall has slowed and I must remedy that. This tour made me realize that I must tweak my study habits more. To convey this to others would be a joy. I am a visual learner so that was just what I needed. Praise Jah!

Your Word is Truth Virtual Bible Tour

I thought [our tour guide] was very informative. I really appreciate his explanation, He brought out some very interesting points. (Myself and two of my children were in Isreal in November and actually did the same tour at the museum) he brought out points that I did not hear the first time. I loved the tour. You could really feel his enthusiasm for what he was explaining and his appreciation for how it tied in with the theme, Your Word is Truth. I actually want to book this tour again, so that my family can watch it as well.

An excellent job, A+

Our brother conducting the tour did an excellent job, A+. I would recommend the tour to anyone of our dear friends. He explained things clearly and included details that did strengthen faith in the veracity of scriptural accounts. Without the tour it would have been difficult and very time consuming to find and understand the relevant details pointed out. Please express our appreciation to our dear Brother.

Amazed at the many connections to characters and events in the Bible

I have never been interested in art, especially paintings. This tour focused, not only on the many sculptures, but also on many paintings that I thought had no ties to Bible history. We were amazed at the many connections to characters and events in the Bible. Thank you!

The artifacts drove it home

Seeing how history is laid out with the culture of the Egyptians and other world powers in alignment with what we have learned in the Bible and apply it to modern day was very faith-strengthening! The artifacts drove the point home, and they are lined up with Bible history, also helping us to understand why Jehovah’s standards are different and stand out in the world due to Satan‘s influence since the beginning of world powers!

The information gained from the tours adds more meaning to the scriptures

The tours give you more insight. For instance, seeing the Roman Citizenship display made it more evident how important it was to individuals because of the privileges they enjoyed. When Paul reminded the Roman Christians that their heavenly citizenship was of more value it brought my mind back to the tour and how much people were willing to give up to gain a Roman citizenship. The information gained from the tours adds more meaning to the scriptures.

We never need to worry what the future holds

On the tour were reminded how Koine Greek (through Alexander the Great) made way for the God's word to be translated into a common language, and the roads and Pax Romana (through the Roman Empire) made it possible for the first century christians to safely spread the Kingdom message. These are definitely faith strengthening reminders that even the most powerful kings and kingdoms on earth are no more than "a mere breath" to Jehovah (Psalm 62:9), and he has the power to maneuver any thing he so chooses to accomplish his purpose. We never need to worry what the future holds! What an awe-inspiring God we serve.

See first hand Bible prophecy fulfilled

"Imagine fast forwarding in time to paradise on earth and spending an hour and a half feasting your eyes on the reality come true of Bible prophecy. Though we cannot move forward in time, these Bible tours allow you to fast forward back in time to see first hand Bible prophecy fulfilled. Seeing up close artifacts from ancient civilizations of Bible times provides "convincing evidence" of the accuracy and truth of the Bible. It's like the difference between reading about Noah's ark and seeing it first hand. If that's something you wouldn't miss, likely you will be fascinated by a Bible tour at the LACMA. Don't miss it!"

I’m still in awe!

I'm still in AWE!! To actually see artifacts dated from Biblical times was amazing. My faith is even stronger in Jehovah. My heart was overjoyed with the young adults in our group who were engaged with Biblical questions.

Many people think that we are a closed off people

Many people think that we are a closed off people, and don’t do any research regarding other religions. This tour proved that claim wrong! We can see just how religion has “progressed through the years, using many pagan and demonic influences. You will leave this tour with the tangible evidence to support what you already know to be true.

I highly recommend this tour

The tour "He is the Eternal King" (1Ti 1:17) was a wonderful experience for our family. Our tour guide’s research on the artifacts helped us relate them to the Bible and gave us a better understanding of them (Ps 90:2). The tour was very interesting and informative; helped us see Jehovah as the “King of eternity” (Re 15:3) I highly recommend this tour. Book your tour today and strengthen your faith in Jehovah!

How can anyone deny that we have the truth?

It has completely elevated my faith! How can anyone deny that we have the truth? The fact the the illustrations in our publications are so accurate to actual artifacts seen in the museum is amazing and admiring! Because The Met is so big, I never would have seen the pieces shown on my own had I not had the Bible tour.

My faith and knowledge continues to soar

I have always loved Bible history and archeology. During isolation because of the virus, these tours have brought me great joy making ‘travel’ possible for me to Jerusalem, a life-long desire! My faith and knowledge continues to soar because of your tours. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

All were encouraged to and did participate

Our tour guides Rob and Shirley were prompt, and welcoming. They spoke with warmth and enthusiasm. And all were encouraged to and did participate, from our youngest member to older ones in the group. We walked away with more than one research project for family worship and personal study. Very wonderful morning! Thank you!

Our Tour Guide kept us on our toes!

This tour deepened my appreciation for Bible Study. We all know it is important, but seeing firsthand how history and Jehovah are connected, has spurned the desire to study even more. Our delightful tour guide made sure we were first-hand participants in the tour, and kept us on our toes! We cannot wait to have another one!

A spiritual boost that everyone could use

The Run With Endurance tour is a spiritual boost that everyone could use. It helps build up your faith in Jehovah. It also helps you to really appreciate all that is written in the Bible and stirs up the spiritual hunger to do more research on what we read. I have done several museum Bible tours in various cities and it is evident that Jehovah has blessed the use of these Bible tours to help His servants to continue running with endurance. I have enjoyed the Bible tours I have done to date and will continue to do them as they are a great source of spiritual encouragement!

I could feel your excitement while you were talking

Thank you brother for the tour. I could feel your excitement while you were talking to us. I love history myself, but not so much my husband. He's patient with me when we go on tours like this. I would love to be a tour guide. Perhaps one day I will make it happen, if this system last that long (which I doubt).

The tour encouraged me to dig deeper into the Bible

The tour encouraged me to dig deeper into the Bible; looking up the references from the faithful and discreet slave after reading an account. I appreciated the background information on the Greeks and Romans & how their culture influenced people and how it impacted Christians and their faith. I appreciated the part about the meaning of Jehovah's name; how he causes us to become whatever he wants us to become and the piece of art that bore his name. I also appreciated how the tour guide emphasized how artists aren't concerned about displaying accurate Bible accounts, but the slave is.

Would definitely recommend this tour

"Loved the tour! Helped me appreciate Jehovah as the TRUE God of prophecy; superior over the many ancient and ineffective false gods of the past. Tim's presentation was interesting, factual and motivating. Excellent how he encouraged participation by the young ones in our group! Would definitely recommend this tour for history buffs and anyone who values using discernment to examine the gods who are worshipped today. A big thanks to ALL who certainly worked hard to bring this valuable tour to the west coast. Well done!"

Strengthened my faith and trust in our creator Jehovah God

The theme of this tour was wonderful for the teenagers we brought along from our congregation. The world around us promotes university education as the unquestionable road to success and wisdom. This tour outlines that in every aspect of human understanding and “wisdom” throughout history and to today, Jehovah’s knowledge, wisdom, and power is incomparably superior. It definitely strengthened my faith and trust in our creator Jehovah God.

This is a rich spiritual experience

This is a rich spiritual experience that I can highly recommend to others. It's a thoroughly researched, fast-moving description of the events in the early days of Jerusalem. It was fascinating to dig below the surface and see ancient ruins "come to life". It made me think of Brother Splane's talk about enhancing our Bible reading. This is an excellent example of it. So if you haven't done this tour yet, do it!

It captured the essence of true Bible realities

The tour was encouraging as it captured the essence of true Bible realities and motivates you to stay on track spiritually. It will help you to dig further into the scriptures and do additional research. The tour helps you to appreciate more of what is written in the Bible, especially when you understand the circumstances or the things that were going on at the time. The scriptures take on additional meaning when you understand that.

Helped us to build further appreciation for Jehovah‘s perfect balance

The tour helped us to build further appreciation for Jehovah‘s perfect balance in the use of his love, justice, wisdom and power in dealing with humankind. His supreme rulership is not based on fear but on love. This tour reminded us that deeper study breathes even more life and meaning into God’s Word, the Bible. Thank you so much for allowing us to tour the museum in such an insightful way.

It felt like training for what lies ahead

I was able to bring my study on the tour with me. The lecture style was unexpected by both of us but her attention to the information was rapt. She took pictures of some of the highlighted artifacts to share with her family. Afterward, she had many questions regarding the relationships between the artifacts and the Bible accounts mentioned in the tour. Then, she asked me what I got out of the tour. What I told her was this; here we were in a very public place, openly looking up scriptures, reading from them aloud and discussing Jehovah and his sovereignty with freeness of speech, irrespective of who might hear, with our worship and our God not hidden. It felt like training for what lies ahead.

From a guest who has visited Rome

I visited Rome in 2013 and enjoyed touring many sites (Colosseum, Vatican, etcetera) so it made the virtual tour all the more familiar. However, I now believe I would’ve loved to have experienced THIS tour FIRST (if I would’ve known about it), because the presentation helped me to visually understand better the layout and biblical significance of many famous structures of this most wonderful ancient place!
