Biblical Reproductions - Products

Several days ago I was really excited to find out that I had been selected as one of the bloggers who gets to review a product from a company called Biblical Reproductions. Founded in 2011 by Alex Ingelman, Biblical Reproductions was created to provide high quality reproductions of treasures for your home or church. Biblical Reproduction Inc. has the exclusive North American rights for reproduction of artifacts granted by Israel’s Antiquities Authority and they come with a Certificate of Authorization.
Temple Court Inscription
Biblical Antiquities Reproduction Group, Inc., is based in both Toronto, Canada and Jerusalem, Israel.  Igelman has a strong passion for the Bible, History and the Holy Land and wanted to share some of the treasures to be found with the general public. Of course, the actual artifacts cannot be sold, but

The Genesis Scroll

Just imagine having a reproduction of one of the Dead Sea Scrolls! The Genesis scroll (pictured left) contains 11 lines of text: Genesis 1:18-27. Or the Temple Court Inscription  that dates back to the 1st century BC! Though fragmented, the Temple Courts Inscription itself can be reconstructed to read:
“No foreigner is to enter the barriers surrounding the sanctuary. He who is caught will have himself to blame for his death which will follow.”
The scroll fragments, pottery, and other items they have for sale are not only great as teaching tools, but are also part of our own historical and religious heritage. I especially loved the oil lamps I saw pictured. They have both 1st century and 4th century reproductions. Such a simple household item, but they send my imagination flying into overdrive!

I was given this opportunity due to my participation as a CWA Review Crew member. Look for part 2 of my review next week.
