Lane Of Apostles
The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. – Revelations 21:14
Everything that the Lord does has a purpose. Us mortals cannot even begin to understand that. When Br Mathew Vergis was chosen by God Almighty to be his loyal servant and spread the divine Word to the masses, decades ago, little did the brother know that he was becoming an instrument for far greater things. Starting from a fasting prayer session that was attended by less than ten, Br Vergis led thousands into the spiritual embrace of Jesus Christ in single sessions. And when the time was right, the Holy Spirit inspired to build The Museum of the Word – an enduring monument exalting the Holy Bible.
We can draw parallels to the selection of the Apostles by Jesus Christ two millennia ago. He chose his disciples from simple folk. These men were witnesses to the life, the miracles, the divine love, the ultimate sacrifice and the resurrection of the Son of God. These simple folks gathered power from the Holy Spirit and went on to spread the Word to the whole of humanity. The rest is history.
The Lane of Apostles in the Museum of the Word is among the most important exhibits. The statues of the original 11 – Peter, Mathew, Luke, Mark, Thomas, Andrew, Judas Thaddaeus, John, James, Philip, Bartholomew, Simon and Mathias who was chosen to replace Judas Iscariot, the traitor. The plaques beneath each statue gives short history of the Apostles’ life, mission, death and final resting place. The Lane of Apostles inspires visitors to renew their resolve to go out to the world and evangelise all in the name of Lord Jesus Christ.
