The Biblical Museum shows unique works from the Jewish Museum in Berlin. The art works portray Biblical stories that inspired Jewish artists from the late 19th until the early 20th century.

The works of artists such as Max Liebermann, Jacob Steinhardt and Pavel Feinstein have in common that they represent Biblical characters and stories in their own, non-traditional way. They challenge us to break away from the accepted standard approach and to experience the old stories in a new way.

The Biblical Museum asked storyteller Bertien Minco, who grew up in a Jewish family in Groningen in the 1960s and 70s, to tell a personal story about four of the artworks. Bertien also asked her daughter Merav to join her in one of these stories.
