The Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., again exhibits illustrations from the Wiedmann Bible. This time, as part of the exhibit "The Samaritans: A Biblical People."

The exhibition (September 16, 2022, to January 01, 2023) is a partnership between the Museum of the Bible and the Yeshiva University Center for Israel Studies. It illuminates the Samaritans' history, a community that has endured for over 2,000 years.

Included in the Samaritan exhibit, which displays many important artifacts from museums and libraries worldwide, are paintings from the Wiedmann Bible, a unique compilation of 3,333 hand-painted images of the Old and New Testaments by German artist Willy Wiedmann (1929-2013).

The Wiedmann Bible paintings displayed are from the New Testament: "Jesus Talks With a Samaritan Woman" (John 4:1-26) and "The Parable of the Good Samaritan" (Luke 10:25-37).

The premier Wiedmann Bible exhibition at the Museum of the Bible enjoyed an extended showing from October 27, 2018, to September 8, 2019, due to an overwhelming response from amazed viewers.
