Saint John's Bible



I first read about this project about 10 years ago and was blown away: A new, hand-written Bible, fully illuminated. The work is simply striking. Check it out:

The St. John's Bible - "In the Beginning..." from Speaking of Faith on Vimeo.

Here is the stem of Jesse, can you find Jesus, note the DNA double helix.

I've been to the Catholic College (uh, St. Johns) where they put this all together. I have seen original manuscripts and it is pretty amazing.
