Expedition: Museum of the Bible


Your matched gift can preserve more Greek New Testament manuscripts.

It’s been a very long eighteen months for everyone, and no less so for CSNTM.

We used the time wisely, however. During the pandemic shutdown, we carefully evaluated and improved our infrastructure, processes, equipment, and training. We wanted to be sure that when the world reopened, we would be ready to go. And now that domestic travel restrictions have lifted, we are excited to digitize ancient New Testament Greek manuscripts with renewed strength and even better quality.

Our first planned expedition is to Washington, DC at the Museum of the Bible, where we will use our state-of-the-art digital cameras and, for some documents, our Multispectral Imaging equipment. Decay over time is inevitable but, together, we can preserve these treasures.

We are very excited about the opportunity that awaits!


But we’re not alone in our excitement. A generous donor is so excited about these new opportunities that he has agreed to match, dollar for dollar, all donations up to $50,000!

With your doubled gift today, you join a growing community of people who cherish truth and have put their good intentions into action. Your gift will preserve the words of the apostles for today and for future generations. And you will bring even greater clarity to modern translations of the New Testament.



Will you help with a generous gift? With your matched donation, more of these priceless treasures can be preserved for today and for generations to come.
