Construction began this week on a new museum in Washington D.C. that aims to promote appreciation of the Bible. The eight-story, 430,000-square-foot Museum of the Bible will be housed in a former refrigeration warehouse three blocks from the U.S. Capitol. It will focus on the history, narrative, and impact of the Bible and contain more than 44,000 rare Bible artifacts belonging to the Green family of Oklahoma, the museum’s founders and owners of the Hobby Lobby chain.
