apple watchThe Apple Watch looks awesome. I want one. For my birthday/Christmas last year, I saved every single dime of gift money so that I could buy an Apple Watch once it released. And you know why: Because the Apple Watch is more than a watch. The reason I wanted to buy an Apple Watch was not because I needed a time-telling device. If someone were to drop the coin to purchase an Apple Watch and use it only as a time-telling device, well, let's just say they will have to answer to God one day for their misuse of this amazing technology. The Apple Watch was made for so much more.

MotB_Main_Logo-CMYKThe Museum of the Bible is similar to the Apple Watch. To think of Museum of the Bible merely as a museum is similar to thinking of the Apple Watch as nothing more than a time-keeping device. This is not a new Museum. This is a new multi-resource platform. The Apple Watch is designed to give you access to all kinds of different apps, enable you to make phone calls, measure your physical activity including your heart rate, allow you to pay for groceries without touching your wallet, play music, and do it all while giving you a unique, personal experience. The Museum of the Bible is designed to help you engage with the Bible through traveling exhibits that go all over the world (like the Passages exhibit in Santa Clarita), fascinating lectures you can gain access to right now, and by sending speakers, like myself, to share the message of the Bible's history, impact and narrative. And we want to provide you with the very best experience in all of these various venues!

To think of Museum of the Bible merely as a museum is like thinking of the Apple Watch as nothing more than a time-keeping device.

As great as the Apple Watch seems to be, I think the Passages Exhibit from Museum of the Bible is undeniably a better deal than the Apple Watch. Here are a few reasons why:

1. The Museum of the Bible has a higher customer satisfaction rate.
Facebook FansThis must cut to the core for Apple fans. 94% of people who visited our current traveling exhibit Passages in Santa Clarita next month said they are "likely or very likely to recommend Passages to a friend". In addition, nearly two out of every three people said they are likely or very likely to make a return trip! You do not have to search hard on the internet to see a plethora of mixed reviews on the Apple Watch. And I have yet to find a review where hardly anyone is buying multiple watches to fit the occasion. But don't take my word for it, see the Passages reviews for yourself!

2. The Museum of the Bible celebrates a TIMEless treasure.
Apple RolexSee what I did there? The Apple Watch is on the cutting edge of wearable technology. You can make a phone call from your wrist! But you know they are in their fancy Apple labs in Cupertino, CA right now designing the Apple Watch 2 or the Apple Watch II or the Apple Watch Dos. The Bible has withstood the test of time. The Museum of the Bible celebrates the Bible which has been the same books for hundreds and thousands of years! Check out this new video from Museum of the Bible to see just what I mean!

3. The Museum of the Bible is MUCH cheaper!
Duggar FamilyYou could buy TWENTY Season passes at Passages for the cost of the cheapest Apple Watch on the market. Unless your last name is Duggar, that is a season pass for you and everyone in your family! We have had 9 out of 10 guests give us a perfect five-star review as the leave the exhibit. You will not find more bang for your buck at another Bible exhibit anywhere in the world!

Tim Cook, if you are reading this, we would love for you to come visit us! Bring your whole team! It is a short flight or a day drive, but we will give you a VIP tour of Passages. Maybe in exchange, you could send an Apple Watch to me at Museum of the Bible? Even though in my opinion, Museum of the Bible is better, I still REALLY want an Apple Watch! Just not enough to spend my money on it. Instead, I'll just go see Passages again!

Museum of the Bible

Museums are homes for history. Museums preserve, study, and display artifacts that have had significant historical impact on our world. To many children, museums are a world of imagination come to life. For many adults, museums are a reminder of significant events that altered the course of human history.

The most famous museums in the world all have some of the most significant artifacts on display:

  • The Louvre boasts the legendary Mona Lisa gazing at all who enter.
  • The Hope Diamond in the Museum of Natural History draws millions of visitors each year.
  • The Vatican wouldn't be complete without the Sistine Chapel, the masterpiece of Michelangelo.

Night at the MuseumYet in all of these wonders, one area of history has been surprisingly overlooked. This historical artifact has had a greater impact on art than Michelangelo or Van Gogh, a greater impact on government than Caesar or George Washington, a greater impact on education than ancient Greeks or Common Core, and a greater impact on business than John Rockefeller or Warren Buffet. What is this hero of humanity that has been inexplicably omitted from our history homes?

The Bible.

Museum of the Bible is set to open in Washington, D.C. in fall 2017. This will be a world-class museum a few blocks from the Capitol. This museum will celebrate the Book of Books with many of the greatest Bible collections in the world on display. A large team of scholars has been working to study the contents of the Green Collection to ensure it is of the highest scholastic standards. Best of all, the leading architects and design firms have worked to create the most engaging museum on the planet.

Finally, the most significant piece of humanity's history will have a proper home.
