The Gulf Coast Exploreum has played host to the documentary “Jerusalem” since late summer and as the film’s stay winds down to its 2015 departure, opportunities for scholarly pursuit remain. The hands-on science center at the foot of Government Street will present a look at religious literary texts in the midst of the holiday season.

The next presentation is courtesy of Bill Warren, Ph.D., Director of the Center for New Testament Textual Studies, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Warren will take a look at the codification of religious faith and its tie with historical documents.

The 42-minute film, showing in the IMAX Theatre, is a National Geographic work exploring the town at the heart of three of the globe’s most influential religions. It does so on a human level, seeing Jerusalem through the eyes of three women of different faiths.

Cost of the lecture is $10. Refreshments and appetizers will be available.
