Largest Collection Of Biblical Artifacts On Display In Oklahoma City

07.19.11 | Sarah Harnisch

The Green Collection, one of the largest private collections of Biblical artifacts, is on display in Oklahoma City. The 30,000 piece collection belonging to Hobby Lobby owner Mart Green is part of a display called "Passages" -- an interactive exhibit telling the story of the English Bible to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible. It's the largest collection of ancient scrolls anywhere in the world -- not even Jewish museums in Israel have this many. Among the priceless items is the fifth-earliest completed Bible -- dating back within three generations of Jesus' lifetime.

The collection will be at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art through October 16th.
