The Oklahoman newspaper in Oklahoma City reports:

Water from rivers that fed the biblical Garden of Eden, rocks from the mountain where Moses received the Ten Commandments, a slingshot and smooth stones from the valley where David faced Goliath and a crown of thorns like the one forced onto Jesus’ head are among artifacts from the Middle East that are meant to lead viewers on a visual tour of the Bible, said Cheryl Ginnings.
Ginnings and her husband, Monte, recently donated the collection to Oklahoma Christian University, where both attended school and met 45 years ago. The Novak-Ginnings Biblical Artifacts Collection is made up of items the Ginnings and Cheryl Ginnings’ parents, Warder and Lottie Novak, gleaned over many years on 10 trips to 15 countries in what is considered the biblical holy lands.
