A Life Transformed

by Creation Museum on February 11, 2011

Returning to the Creation Museum for three Saturdays in April, guests will travel with Hyam, a temple guard, on his way to Bethlehem some 2,000 years ago in a presentation entitled “The Temple Guard: A Life Transformed.”

Portrayed by Deks Nordguist, who has studied the ancient Roman world extensively, Hyam (the temple guard) is on a mission from the evil King Herod to assassinate the child born “King of the Jews.” Though a fictional story, Hyam’s gripping account is based on first-century Israeli history and is grounded in the historical events given in Scripture.

Though serving the king, Hyam wonders if this child could possibly the long-awaited Messiah. Could it be that his potential victim is the Anointed One who would free Israel from Roman bondage and bring a time of everlasting peace and joy?

Nordguist originally gave this captivating drama during the Creation Museum’s 2009 Christmas event, and because of the popularity of the presentation, he returned this past December for Christmas Town 2010.

“The Temple Guard: A Life Transformed” will be presented on April 2, 9, and 23 in the museum’s Special Effects Theater. Tickets are only $2 (or $10/max for a family) with paid museum admission.
