The Ancient Hebrew Scroll Project will visit Orange County on March 16. Orange Baptist Church will host the display in its Pine Room from noon until 4 p.m. Brief talks about the project will be given at 1 and 3 p.m. All are welcome to view the display free of charge.

The project is a complete Old Testament/Tanakh collection of scripture scrolls. The oldest, a 15th-century deerskin Torah scroll, is from Morocco. The $3 million collection includes every book of the Old Testament in the Tanakh configuration. The collection was acquired and is owned by the Christian Heritage Foundation of Cleburne, Texas. There are only five such collections in the world. Three are in the vaults of the Vatican and one in The Museum of the Bible. More information about the project is available at ancienthebrewscrollproject.org.

The display is jointly sponsored by Christ Anglican Fellowship and Orange Baptist Church, 123 W. Main St., Orange.
