The highly anticipated Museum of the Bible is opening in Washington D.C. this Friday, November 17.

CBN News recently spoke with Museum co-founders Steve and Jackie Green about their vision for this project and their hope for what it will accomplish.

Steve Green explained that they first began requiring historical, and particularly, biblically significant, artifacts in 2009: "So it's been a fairly rapid journey and as our collection grew, that's when the family really felt the sense of responsibility that we needed to make sure that this dream of a Bible museum became a reality," said Green.

The Museum of the Bible promises to be “an innovative, global, educational institution whose purpose is to invite all people to engage with the history, narrative and impact of the Bible,” according to its website.

It will feature recreations of the Israelite Temple, towns where Jesus walked, and many other displays and interactive features.

The Greens also noted that they have received criticism while working on this project. But they are no strangers to criticism. As owners of Hobby Lobby, several years ago the Greens were at the center of a high-profile Supreme Court case about religious freedom, which ultimately was decided in their favor.

"We have the confidence that if we are true to pointing people to this book, true to the facts, that God will show up and He will impact people's lives," Steve Green concluded.
