Ark atop new DC Bible Museum?

Construction began in mid-February on the new Museum of the Bible being built in Washington, D.C. by the Green Family of Oklahoma.

Recently, more details about the project have surfaced.

The 430,000-square-foot museum is to be dedicated to the impact, history and narrative of the Bible and the plan is to open it in 2017 just three blocks from the U.S. Capitol.

Here’s a story about the project with Oklahoma ties:
