Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
In just a few weeks now the Museum of the Bible will open in Washington DC. – the actual target date, Friday, November 17. The Museum is the brain-child of Hobby Lobby president, Steve Green, who has spent a lifetime collecting over 40,000 rare biblical manuscripts and ancient artifacts, and is a cooperative effort that will bring exhibits from around the world.
According to one article, the building is one of the 5 largest Museums in DC, boasting 430,000 square foot of floor space, on which it displays over 2 million artifacts and the latest in inter-active media exhibits along with live theatre. The man behind actually putting it all together is Cary Summers, best known for his work on the Ark Encounter in Williamston, KY. Having walked through the Ark, I can only imagine the degree of quality research that will go into every one of the displays.
One thing is certain, the Museum of the Bible will lay out before a skeptical and unbelieving world the evidence of the absolute accuracy and reliability of the Word of God. Time was when doubters could hide behind missing pieces of the story and question the truth of the text – but that time has passed. The evidence for the Bible is so great, that the only stubborn refusal can reject its message.
