On May 22, 1843, a wagon train of one thousand pioneers set out from Elm Grove, near Kansas City, on the Oregon Trail. This trek across Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho, and Oregon covered a distance of almost 2,200 miles. This was the first major migration to the Pacific Northwest in the mid- 1800s.
That same year Bibliotheca Sacra was first published in New York City, a pioneering concept in theological publications.
Also in 1843 Charles Dickens’s novel A Christmas Carol was released. Like Bibliotheca Sacra this novel has been in continuous publication for 165 years.
Dallas Seminary acquired the journal in 1943, almost three- quarters of a century ago. In its entire history of 165 years, Bibliotheca Sacra has remained a staunch defender and expression of the Christian faith. The editorial staff stands dedicated to providing the best in biblically sound, scholarly articles and periodical and book reviews.
