Location: Cathedral of the Incarnation (Main Sanctuary)

Date and time: Wednesday, November 29th at 7pm

Join scholar and speaker Tim Ternes as he introduces The Saint John's Bible to the Cathedral of the Incarnation. The breadth and scope of The Saint John’s Bible has been compared to that of The Sistine Chapel. It is the first illuminated, handwritten Bible since the medieval period, and an international team of calligraphers and artists spent fifteen years creating it. Though the team used medieval techniques, the illustrations incorporate modern elements such as DNA strands, images from the Hubble telescope, and satellite photos of the Ganges River.

Dr. Koekemoer is a research astrophysicist with the Hubble Space Telescope and has been on its scientific staff for over 20 years. His main research interests include the formation and growth of galaxies and black holes in the early universe and across cosmic time. He is also a committed Christian whose faith plays a central role in his life, and he considers the universe to be one of the ways in which God has chosen to reveal His glory to humankind, so that is possible for our Christian faith to be reconciled in harmony with our scientific understanding of the universe.
