Museum of the Bible is inviting Olympic fans to learn about how the Bible — the best-selling, most influential book in history — has impacted the Olympic games and the athletes who compete in them. Museum of the Bible is an innovative, global, educational institution whose purpose is to invite all people to engage with the Bible. It is housed in a 430,000-square-foot building located just three blocks from the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
The museum is helping usher in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South with “The Winter Olympics and the Bible” – a 10-day YouVersion Bible Plan available through the YouVersion Bible App, the official Bible app for Museum of the Bible, on any smartphone, tablet or computer. This new plan invites people to explore “the Bible’s role in the lives of winter Olympians such as Kelly Clark, Shane Doan, Nick Geopper, Lolo Jones and Elana Meyers-Taylor.”
The complete slate of Olympics-themed programming will be available on the following mediums and platforms:
- A 10-day reading plan available exclusively on the YouVersion Bible App and at com, available in English and Spanish;
- One-minute radio featurettes broadcast syndicated on multiple outlets;
- A daily email blast with online access to the radio featurettes as they’re released.
“Two years ago, before Museum of the Bible had even opened its doors to the public in Washington, D.C., we published our first Olympic-themed content for the Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics in 2016,” says Museum of the Bible Director of Communications Jeremy Burton.
“We experienced such a tremendous response from sports fans, as well as fans of the Bible who had never thought about how the book of books had impacted the athletes that compete in the Olympic Games. We wanted to revisit a similar approach for Pyeongchang 2018 because content like this adds a completely new dimension to this global event.”
Many visitors have already toured Museum of the Bible since the doors opened to the public in November 2017. Timed tickets to the 430,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art Museum of the Bible are available for guests for both general admission and group reservations.
