Queens, New York – At 5:15 a.m. EST, Phoebe awoke with a slight excited jolt. In the dark, she reached for her glasses. She wanted to see what time the alarm clock right next to her empty cup of coffee said. She feared that she slept through her alarm and she couldn’t afford to have that happen: today was the Ang Dating Daan’s Worldwide Bible Exposition, after all. Phoebe allots a special Friday to wake up extra early and listen to her favorite preachers Bro. Eliseo Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon.
Phoebe had nothing to fear, apparently. She didn’t sleep through her alarm – she even beat it with several minutes to spare. In the dark, she smiled and uttered a short prayer of thanks to God for the gift of life and all the blessings, both big and small.
Outside, the sun was glowing a hazy yellow, seemingly covered in a blanket of frost. As she braved the cold and walked towards the Ang Dating Daan Coordinating Center in New York, Phoebe was convinced that this is the way all Fridays must start from those in the West, and how it should end for those in the East.
The Ang Dating Daan’s Bible Exposition
The Ang Dating Daan’s Bible Exposition has always been a one-of-a-kind event. The event started in 1993, and it has since then gathered guests who are interested to ask spiritual queries or listen to interesting biblical answers in one location.
This event is the brainchild of Vice-Presiding Minister Bro. Daniel Razon, who raised the suggestion of inviting one or two of the brethren’s close friends or family members to form an intimate gathering, where they can freely ask their questions about the Bible, big or small, and learn from others’ interesting questions as well.
The intimate gathering, which began in Manila, has now become a global event unlike any other.
And with the advent of newer, more advanced technology, the opportunity for the Bible Exposition to occur in various countries simultaneously happened. Today, the Bible Exposition has become a worldwide phenomenon, significantly increasing its uniqueness.
Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) host Bro. Eliseo Soriano spearheads this live question and answer symposium focusing on biblical truths. The international preacher, who is the Presiding Minister to the Members Church of God International (MCGI) hosts the event from South America.
Beyond Time Zones
Through technology, people in America and in various parts of the world are able to attend the Bible Expositions and ask questions of faith to Bro. Eli.
To accommodate the great number of individuals who follow varying time zones, Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel has started the “Marathon Bible Exposition,” which lasts for a whopping 10 to even 12 hours of non-stop biblical Q&A with the preachers. From evening in the East until morning in the West, the preachers try their best to answer as much questions from as many people as possible.
The Ang Dating Daan’s Bible Exposition hosted by Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon is regularly done every first and last week of each month. Live tweets of important points during the event can be read by following @AngDatingDaanTV and @TheOldPathTV on Twitter.
