  • - MATT CROUCH: BEHIND THE SCENES COMES TO
  • 00:00:15.070 --> 00:00:16.230
  • YOU TODAY FROM OUR NATION'S CAPITOL WITH OUR
  • 00:00:16.250 --> 00:00:18.220
  • DEAR FRIEND AND GUEST, STEVE GREEN.
  • 00:00:18.240 --> 00:00:20.250
  • STEVE, I MIGHT BE INTRODUCING YOU TO OUR
  • 00:00:20.270 --> 00:00:23.250
  • TELEVISION AUDIENCE.
  • 00:00:23.270 --> 00:00:26.190
  • SOME PEOPLE MIGHT NOT KNOW YOU.
  • 00:00:26.210 --> 00:00:29.140
  • I THINK THOUGH THAT IT WOULD BE VERY DIFFICULT
  • 00:00:29.160 --> 00:00:32.140
  • FOR OUR AUDIENCE TO NOT UNDERSTAND AND KNOW THE
  • 00:00:32.160 --> 00:00:34.230
  • TERM HOBBY LOBBY.
  • 00:00:34.250 --> 00:00:36.130
  • - LAURIE CROUCH: COME ON, GIRLS.
  • 00:00:36.150 --> 00:00:38.070
  • - WHAT'S THE CONNECTION BETWEEN HOBBY LOBBY AND YOU?
  • 00:00:38.090 --> 00:00:40.080
  • - STEVE GREEN: WELL, MY FATHER STARTED HOBBY
  • 00:00:40.100 --> 00:00:41.280
  • LOBBY IN 1972.
  • 00:00:42.000 --> 00:00:44.110
  • I WAS NINE YEARS OLD AND WOULD GLUE FRAMES IN THE
  • 00:00:44.130 --> 00:00:47.150
  • HOME FOR MY BUBBLE GUM MONEY.
  • 00:00:47.170 --> 00:00:50.240
  • ME AND MY BROTHER WOULD EARN 7 CENTS A FRAME TO
  • 00:00:50.260 --> 00:00:53.030
  • GLUE FRAMES, AND THEN AS SOON AS I GRADUATED HIGH
  • 00:00:53.050 --> 00:00:56.070
  • SCHOOL I KNEW WHAT I WANTED TO DO.
  • 00:00:56.090 --> 00:00:58.090
  • I WANTED TO GO INTO THE FAMILY BUSINESS SO
  • 00:00:58.110 --> 00:01:00.110
  • STARTED WORKING FULL TIME.
  • 00:01:00.130 --> 00:01:04.040
  • HAD WORKED WHILE I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL AND SUMMERS
  • 00:01:04.060 --> 00:01:06.010
  • AND EVENINGS AND WEEKENDS AT THE STORE, SO AS SOON
  • 00:01:06.030 --> 00:01:07.260
  • AS I GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL STARTED WORKING IN
  • 00:01:07.280 --> 00:01:09.160
  • THE BUSINESS AND HAD BEEN WORKING IT EVER SINCE.
  • 00:01:09.180 --> 00:01:11.040
  • - WOW.
  • 00:01:11.060 --> 00:01:13.050
  • - SO DID YOU START LIKE DOING EVERY JOB SO THAT
  • 00:01:13.070 --> 00:01:14.210
  • NOW YOU CAN WALK INTO THE SHIPPING OR THE -- EVERY
  • 00:01:14.230 --> 00:01:16.150
  • DEPARTMENT AND KNOW THEIR JOB AND WHAT THEY'RE
  • 00:01:16.170 --> 00:01:18.040
  • SUPPOSED TO DO?
  • 00:01:18.060 --> 00:01:19.270
  • - MANY DEPARTMENTS.
  • 00:01:19.290 --> 00:01:22.000
  • THERE'S SOME THAT I DIDN'T GET INVOLVED IN.
  • 00:01:22.020 --> 00:01:23.080
  • WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL FROM PAINTING WALLS,
  • 00:01:23.100 --> 00:01:24.290
  • CLEANING BATHROOMS, UNLOADING TRUCKS,
  • 00:01:25.010 --> 00:01:27.010
  • CHECKING OUT, WORKING ON A FRAME TABLE.
  • 00:01:27.030 --> 00:01:29.140
  • AND THEN AS I GRADUATED WOULD TRAVEL TO THE
  • 00:01:29.160 --> 00:01:33.220
  • STORES AND OVERSEAS STORES, GET INVOLVED IN
  • 00:01:33.240 --> 00:01:36.090
  • BUYING AND LEGAL, INTERNATIONAL.
  • 00:01:36.110 --> 00:01:38.140
  • SO I'VE BEEN INVOLVED IN A LOT OF AREAS.
  • 00:01:38.160 --> 00:01:41.080
  • NOT ALL OF THEM BUT PH MOST AREAS OF
  • 00:01:41.100 --> 00:01:42.260
  • THE BUSINESS.
  • 00:01:42.280 --> 00:01:44.180
  • - WOW.
  • 00:01:44.200 --> 00:01:46.000
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:01:46.020 --> 00:01:47.170
  • SO YOU'RE TALKING 1972.
  • 00:01:47.190 --> 00:01:49.080
  • YOUR DAD IN A RECENT MEETING THAT WE HAD IN
  • 00:01:49.100 --> 00:01:51.260
  • OKLAHOMA CITY, YOUR DAD IN THE GIFT BASKET THAT
  • 00:01:51.280 --> 00:01:54.000
  • HE GAVE US WHICH WAS REALLY FUN BY THE WAY --
  • 00:01:54.020 --> 00:01:56.010
  • - YES.
  • 00:01:56.030 --> 00:01:58.020
  • - WAS HIS BOOK, AND I'M ABOUT 40 PAGES INTO IT,
  • 00:01:58.040 --> 00:02:00.210
  • AND I KNEW THE SEVEN CENTS AND THE GLUING UP OF THE
  • 00:02:00.230 --> 00:02:03.150
  • FRAMES ON THE KITCHEN TABLE AND ALL OF THAT
  • 00:02:03.170 --> 00:02:04.280
  • KIND OF STUFF.
  • 00:02:05.000 --> 00:02:07.040
  • AND OUR FAMILY'S BUSINESS STARTED IN 1973, SO TBN
  • 00:02:07.060 --> 00:02:10.290
  • BOUGHT ITS FIRST TV STATION IN 1973.
  • 00:02:11.010 --> 00:02:14.020
  • IT WENT ON THE AIR IN 1973, BUT THE VISION OF
  • 00:02:14.040 --> 00:02:16.260
  • CHRISTIAN TELEVISION WHICH NOW IS 30 NETWORKS
  • 00:02:16.280 --> 00:02:22.270
  • AROUND THE WORLD AND WHATNOT, SO INTERESTING.
  • 00:02:22.290 --> 00:02:27.040
  • YOU NEVER WENT TO COLLEGE.
  • 00:02:27.060 --> 00:02:29.120
  • - NO.
  • 00:02:29.140 --> 00:02:31.080
  • - YOU WENT DIRECTLY FROM HIGH SCHOOL INTO THE
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:32.250
  • FAMILY BUSINESS.
  • 00:02:32.270 --> 00:02:35.080
  • MY BROTHER WENT FROM JUNIOR HIGH INTO THE
  • 00:02:35.100 --> 00:02:37.010
  • FAMILY BUSINESS.
  • 00:02:37.030 --> 00:02:38.240
  • I WENT FROM HIGH SCHOOL.
  • 00:02:38.260 --> 00:02:40.190
  • I WENT TO COLLEGE FOR ABOUT NINE MINUTES AND
  • 00:02:40.210 --> 00:02:43.020
  • REALIZED THAT MY DAD WANTED ME TO GO AND MOVE
  • 00:02:43.040 --> 00:02:46.180
  • ON IN AND SAME THING, PULLING CAMERA CABLES,
  • 00:02:46.200 --> 00:02:51.110
  • HANGING LIGHTS IN A GRID, YOU KNOW, AND DOING ALL
  • 00:02:51.130 --> 00:02:54.180
  • THE DIFFERENT TASKS INVOLVED IN THAT.
  • 00:02:54.200 --> 00:02:57.240
  • AND SO IT'S REALLY BEEN A VERY SIMILAR JOURNEY FOR
  • 00:02:57.260 --> 00:03:00.120
  • YOU AND I.
  • 00:03:00.140 --> 00:03:03.250
  • I'M PROBABLY A LITTLE OLDER THAN YOU ARE, BUT I
  • 00:03:03.270 --> 00:03:06.110
  • KNOW YOU CAN'T TELL ON TV BECAUSE I WEAR A LOT MORE
  • 00:03:06.130 --> 00:03:08.260
  • MAKE UP, BUT ULTIMATELY HOBBY LOBBY IS THE
  • 00:03:08.280 --> 00:03:11.080
  • CLOSEST STORE TO OUR HOME IN COLLEYVILLE, TEXAS.
  • 00:03:11.100 --> 00:03:18.020
  • - IT MIGHT BE IN COLLEYVILLE.
  • 00:03:18.040 --> 00:03:20.100
  • - IT'S SOUTH LAKE.
  • 00:03:20.120 --> 00:03:21.260
  • - SOUTH LAKE.
  • 00:03:21.280 --> 00:03:23.260
  • - DO YOU KNOW WHERE EVERY ONE OF YOUR STORES ARE?
  • 00:03:23.280 --> 00:03:25.190
  • - WE HAVE 700 OF THEM.
  • 00:03:25.210 --> 00:03:27.240
  • I KNOW MANY, BUT I COULDN'T SAY ALL OF THEM.
  • 00:03:27.260 --> 00:03:29.050
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:03:29.070 --> 00:03:30.260
  • SO I THINK THERE'S ONE EITHER IN SOUTH LAKE, TEXAS.
  • 00:03:30.280 --> 00:03:32.170
  • - SOUTH LAKE, AND WE'RE GRATEFUL.
  • 00:03:32.190 --> 00:03:34.100
  • - THAT'S THE ONE WE GO TO.
  • 00:03:34.120 --> 00:03:36.100
  • AND WE'VE BEEN THERE MANY TIMES, AND SO HOBBY
  • 00:03:36.120 --> 00:03:39.060
  • LOBBY, AND I THINK IT WOULD BE INTERESTING
  • 00:03:39.080 --> 00:03:42.280
  • BEFORE WE GET INTO WHAT WE'RE REALLY HERE TO TALK
  • 00:03:43.000 --> 00:03:46.080
  • ABOUT WHICH IS THE MUSEUM OF THE BIBLE AND YOUR
  • 00:03:46.100 --> 00:03:48.260
  • FAMILY'S INVOLVEMENT IN THAT, IN THE SHADOW OF
  • 00:03:48.280 --> 00:03:51.120
  • THE CAPITOL AND WHAT AN EPIC STUDIO.
  • 00:03:51.140 --> 00:03:54.220
  • I MEAN, LOOK AT THIS SHOT IN BETWEEN.
  • 00:03:54.240 --> 00:03:58.110
  • I MEAN, LOOK AT THE MONITOR DOWN THERE.
  • 00:03:58.130 --> 00:04:00.220
  • THAT'S AN AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL SHOT, AND SO
  • 00:04:00.240 --> 00:04:03.170
  • ULTIMATELY IN WASHINGTON DC TOGETHER I THINK, YOU
  • 00:04:03.190 --> 00:04:07.230
  • KNOW, IT WAS HOBBY LOBBY THAT BECAME VERY FAMOUS
  • 00:04:07.250 --> 00:04:12.000
  • FOR A SUPREME COURT DECISION.
  • 00:04:12.020 --> 00:04:14.200
  • YOUR FAMILY HAD TO MAKE A VERY, VERY,
  • 00:04:14.220 --> 00:04:17.000
  • VERY TOUGH DECISION.
  • 00:04:17.020 --> 00:04:19.200
  • WHY DON'T YOU TELL MAYBE A LITTLE BIT OF THE
  • 00:04:19.220 --> 00:04:22.280
  • INSIDE -- I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THE ULTIMATE
  • 00:04:23.000 --> 00:04:25.290
  • STORY OF A VICTORY IN THE SUPREME COURT, BUT
  • 00:04:26.010 --> 00:04:29.040
  • THEY'RE MIGHT HAVE BEEN A FEW RESTLESS NIGHTS THERE
  • 00:04:29.060 --> 00:04:33.020
  • IN THE GREEN FAMILY.
  • 00:04:33.040 --> 00:04:34.240
  • WHAT'S A LITTLE BIT OF THE INSIDE SCOOP ON THAT?
  • 00:04:34.260 --> 00:04:36.230
  • - WELL, EARLY ON WE WERE APPROACHED BY OUR LEGAL
  • 00:04:36.250 --> 00:04:38.290
  • TEAM ABOUT THE DECISION THAT WAS COMING DOWN, AND
  • 00:04:39.010 --> 00:04:40.190
  • IT WAS EARLY ON.
  • 00:04:40.210 --> 00:04:43.090
  • THERE WERE SOME DECISIONS THAT HAD YET TO BE MADE
  • 00:04:43.110 --> 00:04:46.080
  • TO DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT IT WAS GOING TO
  • 00:04:46.100 --> 00:04:48.180
  • IMPACT OUR BUSINESS OR NOT, BUT AFTER THOSE
  • 00:04:48.200 --> 00:04:51.020
  • DECISIONS WERE MADE AND OUR LEGAL COUNSEL AGAIN
  • 00:04:51.040 --> 00:04:56.010
  • CAME TO THE FAMILY BECAUSE THEY KNEW OUR
  • 00:04:56.030 --> 00:04:59.010
  • HEART AND THEY KNEW WE WOULD NOT WANT TO
  • 00:04:59.030 --> 00:05:04.200
  • PARTICIPATE IN TAKING LIFE, SO THE FAMILY HAD
  • 00:05:04.220 --> 00:05:08.080
  • TO HAVE A MEETING, AND WE MET IN MY BROTHER'S HOME.
  • 00:05:08.100 --> 00:05:12.040
  • MY DAD INVITED WHAT WE REFER TO AS JIM, 1, 2,
  • 00:05:12.060 --> 00:05:14.180
  • AND 3, MY DAD, ME AND MY SIBLINGS AND OUR KIDS.
  • 00:05:14.200 --> 00:05:18.060
  • AND WE HAD 14, 15 OF US THERE, AND DAD WANTED TO
  • 00:05:18.080 --> 00:05:21.160
  • HEAR FROM EVERYBODY SO EVERYBODY GOT TO SPEAK.
  • 00:05:21.180 --> 00:05:24.100
  • KIND OF STARTED WITH THE YOUNGEST AND WORKED THEIR
  • 00:05:24.120 --> 00:05:27.210
  • WAY UP TO THE OLDEST, AND BY THE END OF THE
  • 00:05:27.230 --> 00:05:30.170
  • DISCUSSION THERE WAS SOME HONEST DISCUSSIONS ABOUT
  • 00:05:30.190 --> 00:05:32.180
  • THE RAMIFICATIONS.
  • 00:05:32.200 --> 00:05:34.200
  • WORST CASE SCENARIOS, BUT IN THE END THE FAMILY
  • 00:05:34.220 --> 00:05:37.240
  • PRETTY MUCH UNANIMOUSLY DETERMINED THAT WE CAN'T
  • 00:05:37.260 --> 00:05:41.130
  • BE A PART OF TAKING LIFE, AND THE ONLY OPTION THAT
  • 00:05:41.150 --> 00:05:44.090
  • WE SAW WAS TO SUE OUR GOVERNMENT, SO THAT SET
  • 00:05:44.110 --> 00:05:46.150
  • US ON THE PATH OF SUING OUR GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:05:46.170 --> 00:05:49.090
  • - AND IT WAS NO SMALL STAKES.
  • 00:05:49.110 --> 00:05:52.010
  • THERE WAS PENALTIES THAT IF THIS WOULD HAVE GONE A
  • 00:05:52.030 --> 00:05:56.260
  • DIFFERENT DIRECTION IT WAS A MILLION OR MORE A
  • 00:05:56.280 --> 00:05:59.010
  • DAY IN REGARD TO THIS.
  • 00:05:59.030 --> 00:06:02.250
  • - FINES.
  • 00:06:02.270 --> 00:06:05.100
  • - AND YOU SIT HERE TODAY VICTORIOUS IN A SUPREME
  • 00:06:05.120 --> 00:06:08.090
  • COURT DECISION.
  • 00:06:08.110 --> 00:06:10.130
  • AND THANK YOU.
  • 00:06:10.150 --> 00:06:12.070
  • THANK YOU FOR THAT.
  • 00:06:12.090 --> 00:06:14.140
  • - AND WE ARE GRATEFUL.
  • 00:06:14.160 --> 00:06:17.160
  • IT WAS AN EXCITING DAY FOR OUR FAMILY WHEN WE
  • 00:06:17.180 --> 00:06:20.160
  • HAD THE POSITIVE RULING BECAUSE THE RAMIFICATIONS
  • 00:06:20.180 --> 00:06:24.140
  • COULD HAVE BEEN DIRE, AND THAT'S AS I SAID IS PART
  • 00:06:24.160 --> 00:06:28.130
  • OF WHAT OUR DISCUSSIONS WERE, BUT ULTIMATELY WHEN
  • 00:06:28.150 --> 00:06:32.050
  • YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING,
  • 00:06:32.070 --> 00:06:35.110
  • YOU KNOW THAT NO MATTER WHAT THE CONSEQUENCES ARE
  • 00:06:35.130 --> 00:06:38.120
  • YOU'RE IN GOOD HANDS, AND WE FELT LIKE WE WERE
  • 00:06:38.140 --> 00:06:41.190
  • DOING EXACTLY WHAT GOD WOULD WANT US TO DO.
  • 00:06:41.210 --> 00:06:44.040
  • WE BELIEVE THAT THIS BUSINESS IS HIS.
  • 00:06:44.060 --> 00:06:46.170
  • HE CAN DO WITH IT WHATEVER HE WANTS TO, AND
  • 00:06:46.190 --> 00:06:49.100
  • SO IF HE WANTED TO GET RID OF IT, THEN THAT WAS
  • 00:06:49.120 --> 00:06:52.060
  • HIS OPTION, BUT WE ARE THANKFUL AND GRATEFUL
  • 00:06:52.080 --> 00:06:56.220
  • THAT WE HAD A POSITIVE RULING.
  • 00:06:56.240 --> 00:06:59.130
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:06:59.150 --> 00:07:01.170
  • BEING 40 PAGES INTO YOUR DAD'S BOOK, I FOUND THAT
  • 00:07:01.190 --> 00:07:04.180
  • HE'S A NEAT FREAK.
  • 00:07:04.200 --> 00:07:06.290
  • IS THAT TRUE?
  • 00:07:07.010 --> 00:07:08.220
  • YOU SMILE.
  • 00:07:08.240 --> 00:07:11.030
  • - THAT'S WHAT I REFER TO HIM AS.
  • 00:07:11.050 --> 00:07:12.240
  • - OKAY. NEAT FREAK. OKAY.
  • 00:07:12.260 --> 00:07:14.150
  • SO ARE YOU A NEAT FREAK IN -- NOT AS MUCH AS MY DAD.
  • 00:07:14.170 --> 00:07:16.120
  • SOMEWHAT.
  • 00:07:16.140 --> 00:07:19.130
  • MY WIFE AND MY KIDS MIGHT THINK SO, BUT NOT TO THE
  • 00:07:19.150 --> 00:07:20.210
  • DEGREE MY DAD IS.
  • 00:07:20.230 --> 00:07:22.010
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:07:22.030 --> 00:07:23.110
  • SO HE'S SUPER ORGANIZED.
  • 00:07:23.130 --> 00:07:24.190
  • - VERY ORGANIZED.
  • 00:07:24.210 --> 00:07:26.160
  • - SUPER PICKY ABOUT ALL OF THAT, SO WAS HE THE
  • 00:07:26.180 --> 00:07:28.100
  • TYPE OF DAD OF THE GENERATION THAT IF YOU
  • 00:07:28.120 --> 00:07:29.260
  • LEFT THE LIGHT ON IN THE ROOM WOULD HE THUMP
  • 00:07:29.280 --> 00:07:31.050
  • YOU IN THE HEAD?
  • 00:07:31.070 --> 00:07:32.220
  • BECAUSE MY DAD DID WHEN I WOULDN'T -- HE WAS REALLY A
  • 00:07:32.240 --> 00:07:35.020
  • -- WELL, IF YOU JUST READ THE FIRST 40 PAGES, I
  • 00:07:35.040 --> 00:07:41.090
  • MEAN, MAYBE I'LL LEARN MORE BUT HE WAS REALLY
  • 00:07:41.110 --> 00:07:43.030
  • INVOLVED IN EVERYTHING, WASN'T HE?
  • 00:07:43.050 --> 00:07:45.110
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:07:45.130 --> 00:07:47.040
  • LIGHTS, I DON'T REMEMBER THAT BEING, BUT THE
  • 00:07:47.060 --> 00:07:49.070
  • COMMON PHRASE WAS EVERYTHING HAS A HOME AND
  • 00:07:49.090 --> 00:07:52.120
  • EVERYTHING IN ITS HOME, SO WHERE'S ITS HOME?
  • 00:07:52.140 --> 00:07:54.210
  • AND IF IT DOESN'T HAVE ONE, FIND IT AND PUT IT
  • 00:07:54.230 --> 00:07:56.180

  • - MOM LOVED IT. MOM LOVED HOBBY LOBBY.
  • 00:09:07.090 --> 00:09:08.190
  • - GOING TO HOBBY LOBBIES AND BEING A PART OF
  • 00:09:08.210 --> 00:09:10.060
  • YOUR STORES.
  • 00:09:10.080 --> 00:09:12.040
  • AND THE AMOUNT OF THINGS THAT YOU HAVE THERE IS
  • 00:09:12.060 --> 00:09:17.270
  • UNBELIEVABLE, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:09:17.290 --> 00:09:20.010
  • IF YOU'RE INTO NASCAR OR YOU'RE INTO THIS OR THAT
  • 00:09:20.030 --> 00:09:25.070
  • YOU CAN FIND ALL THAT FUN STUFF.
  • 00:09:25.090 --> 00:09:27.070
  • - WE HAVE ABOUT 70.000 ITEMS THAT WE CARRY
  • 00:09:27.090 --> 00:09:28.280
  • EVERY DAY.
  • 00:09:29.000 --> 00:09:30.280
  • IT'S OVER 70.000 EVERY DAY, AND THEN THERE ARE

  • SEASONAL PRODUCTS THAT WE SEND IN SO IN A YEAR'S
  • 00:09:34.010 --> 00:09:36.160
  • TIME THERE'S GOING TO BE OVER 100.000 PRODUCT
  • 00:09:36.180 --> 00:09:39.110
  • THAT A CUSTOMER COULD SHOP AND SEE.
  • 00:09:39.130 --> 00:09:42.020
  • WE SELL A LOT OF GREAT PRODUCTS.
  • 00:09:42.040 --> 00:09:45.250
  • - THAT'S AMAZING.
  • 00:09:45.270 --> 00:09:47.280
  • - SO YOUR DADDY WAS TALKING ABOUT HIS FATHER
  • 00:09:48.000 --> 00:09:49.110
  • WAS A PASTOR.
  • 00:09:49.130 --> 00:09:50.280
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:09:51.000 --> 00:09:52.190
  • - PREACHER, TRAVELING PASTOR, PREACHER?
  • 00:09:52.210 --> 00:09:54.210
  • - MY DAD WAS A PREACHER'S KID, SO HE
  • 00:09:54.230 --> 00:09:57.120
  • GREW UP IN A PASTOR'S HOME, AND THE CHURCH
  • 00:09:57.140 --> 00:09:59.210
  • WOULD REGULARLY MOVE THEM AROUND TO DIFFERENT
  • 00:09:59.230 --> 00:10:01.130
  • CHURCHES SO HE WAS IN KANSAS AND TEXAS AND
  • 00:10:01.150 --> 00:10:03.120
  • MEXICO AND OKLAHOMA AND WOULD MOVE AROUND QUITE
  • 00:10:03.140 --> 00:10:05.190
  • OFTEN, AND THE CHURCHES WERE NEVER LARGE.
  • 00:10:05.210 --> 00:10:09.050
  • PROBABLY NO MORE THAN 50 ON AVERAGE, PROBABLY LESS
  • 00:10:09.070 --> 00:10:13.110
  • THAN THAT, SO HE'S ONE OF SIX KIDS SO YOU CAN
  • 00:10:13.130 --> 00:10:17.030
  • IMAGINE A PASTOR PASTORING A CHURCH OF 50
  • 00:10:17.050 --> 00:10:21.000
  • WITH SIX KIDS.
  • 00:10:21.020 --> 00:10:23.190
  • THEY DID NOT HAVE A WHOLE LOT GROWING UP, AND SO
  • 00:10:23.210 --> 00:10:26.260
  • THERE WAS TIMES THAT THEY WOULD GO TO SCHOOL
  • 00:10:26.280 --> 00:10:29.170
  • WITHOUT SHOES.
  • 00:10:29.190 --> 00:10:31.270
  • WE WERE TALKING THE OTHER DAY AT ONE OF MY UNCLE'S
  • 00:10:31.290 --> 00:10:35.060
  • BIRTHDAYS THAT GRANDPA NEVER REAL HAD A CAR.
  • 00:10:35.080 --> 00:10:38.070
  • ONE OF THE SONS WAS THE FIRST ONES TO HAVE A CAR,
  • 00:10:38.090 --> 00:10:41.010
  • SO IT WAS NOT A LOT OF WEALTH IN THE FAMILY AT
  • 00:10:41.030 --> 00:10:47.210
  • ALL, BUT MY GRANDMA WAS ONE THAT TAUGHT MY DAD
  • 00:10:47.230 --> 00:10:50.060
  • AND HIS SIBLINGS TO GIVE.
  • 00:10:50.080 --> 00:10:55.040
  • WHILE SHE NEVER HAD MUCH SHE WAS VERY ADAMANT
  • 00:10:55.060 --> 00:10:57.220
  • ABOUT TITHING.
  • 00:10:57.240 --> 00:11:00.160
  • IF THEY WERE RECEIVING GIFTS FROM THEIR
  • 00:11:00.180 --> 00:11:03.240
  • CONGREGANTS, FROM THEIR GARDENS, VEGETABLES AND
  • 00:11:03.260 --> 00:11:08.020
  • THINGS, SHE COULD CALCULATE WHAT THAT WAS
  • 00:11:08.040 --> 00:11:10.120
  • WORTH AND WOULD TITHE ON THAT BECAUSE THEY HAD A
  • 00:11:10.140 --> 00:11:13.030
  • HEART AND A PASSION FOR GOD.
  • 00:11:13.050 --> 00:11:15.130
  • IT WAS THROUGH HER MINISTRY THAT MY
  • 00:11:15.150 --> 00:11:17.260
  • GRANDFATHER ACTUALLY CAME TO KNOW THE LORD BECAUSE
  • 00:11:17.280 --> 00:11:20.160
  • HER AND HER FATHER WERE EVANGELISTS AND WOULD
  • 00:11:20.180 --> 00:11:23.090
  • EVANGELIZE, SO MY GRANDMOTHER WAS A ROCK
  • 00:11:23.110 --> 00:11:26.020
  • IN OUR FAMILY.
  • 00:11:26.040 --> 00:11:29.240
  • - WOW.
  • 00:11:29.260 --> 00:11:32.170
  • - IN MY DAD'S GROWING UP.
  • 00:11:32.190 --> 00:11:34.270
  • - SO THAT'S WHERE HE GOT IT.
  • 00:11:34.290 --> 00:11:37.180
  • - SO MY DAD GOT HIS PASSION AND LOVE FOR
  • 00:11:37.200 --> 00:11:39.250
  • GIVING THROUGH HIS MOTHER.
  • 00:11:39.270 --> 00:11:42.190
  • - WELL, I THINK IF YOU THINK HEAR THE NAME THE
  • 00:11:42.210 --> 00:11:44.260
  • GREEN FAMILY ECHOES OF GIVING ALL OVER THE WORLD
  • 00:11:44.280 --> 00:11:47.040
  • START REVERBERATING.
  • 00:11:47.060 --> 00:11:50.080
  • YOUR FAMILY IS KNOWN FROM ME, I'VE KNOWN THE GREEN
  • 00:11:50.100 --> 00:11:56.190
  • FAMILY BLESSING AMERICA IN SO MANY MINISTRIES
  • 00:11:56.210 --> 00:11:59.140
  • TODAY, SO MANY OUTREACHES, THE FUNDING THAT
  • 00:11:59.160 --> 00:12:04.090
  • YOU GUYS HAVE GIVEN IS JUST AMAZING.
  • 00:12:04.110 --> 00:12:07.150
  • - WELL, AND WE WOULD -- AND SEE, IT IS MY
  • 00:12:07.170 --> 00:12:11.090
  • GRANDMOTHER THAT IS THE GENESIS OF THAT.
  • 00:12:11.110 --> 00:12:14.010
  • IF YOU ASK MY DAD TODAY IF HE'S OUT GIVEN MY
  • 00:12:14.030 --> 00:12:16.070
  • GRANDMOTHER, HE WOULD SAY NO BECAUSE SHE GAVE WHEN
  • 00:12:16.090 --> 00:12:20.030
  • SHE HAD NOTHING TO GIVE.
  • 00:12:20.050 --> 00:12:22.080
  • AGAIN, LIKE THE WIDOW WHO GAVE OF HER MITE, THE
  • 00:12:22.100 --> 00:12:25.070
  • TWO MITES, JESUS MADE AN INTERESTING COMMENT.
  • 00:12:25.090 --> 00:12:29.160
  • HE SAID SHE GAVE MYRRH, SO WHILE WE ARE ABLE TO
  • 00:12:29.180 --> 00:12:32.240
  • GIVE US OUT OF THE ABUNDANCE THAT GOD HAS
  • 00:12:32.260 --> 00:12:35.030
  • BLESSED US WITH, MY GRANDMOTHER WAS GIVING
  • 00:12:35.050 --> 00:12:36.290
  • WHEN SHE REALLY HAD NOTHING TO GIVE, SO WE
  • 00:12:37.010 --> 00:12:39.110
  • CELEBRATE MY GRANDMOTHER BECAUSE OF THE
  • 00:12:39.130 --> 00:12:41.120
  • INSPIRATION SHE'S BEEN TO OUR FAMILY.
  • 00:12:41.140 --> 00:12:42.260
  • - WOW.
  • 00:12:42.280 --> 00:12:44.260
  • AND JUST THAT GENERATIONAL BLESSING
  • 00:12:44.280 --> 00:12:46.050
  • THAT COMES FROM THAT.
  • 00:12:46.070 --> 00:12:47.190
  • YOU'RE SO RIGHT.
  • 00:12:47.210 --> 00:12:49.130
  • THEY LITERALLY GAVE IT ALL, AND TODAY, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:12:49.150 --> 00:12:51.290
  • THERE'S NOT A WHOLE LOT OF US I DON'T THINK THAT
  • 00:12:52.010 --> 00:12:54.020
  • JUST GIVE IT ALL ALL THE TIME, BUT THOSE
  • 00:12:54.040 --> 00:12:56.130
  • GENERATIONS THAT SEED CONTINUES.
  • 00:12:56.150 --> 00:12:59.230
  • - THAT'S ANOTHER REALLY SUPER INTERESTING
  • 00:12:59.250 --> 00:13:02.020
  • PARALLEL BECAUSE IT WAS MY MOTHER'S GRANDMOTHER
  • 00:13:02.040 --> 00:13:05.040
  • THAT WAS KIND OF THE MATRIARCH.
  • 00:13:05.060 --> 00:13:11.060
  • HER HUSBAND HAD DIED, AND THEY WERE FARMERS IN
  • 00:13:11.080 --> 00:13:16.200
  • IOWA, ILLINOIS.
  • 00:13:16.220 --> 00:13:18.220
  • AND MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER SOLD THAT IOWA FARM AND
  • 00:13:18.240 --> 00:13:21.030
  • FINANCED THE VERY FIRST MISSIONARY WORK INTO
  • 00:13:21.050 --> 00:13:24.160
  • EGYPT WHICH WAS MY GRANDFATHER, MY
  • 00:13:24.180 --> 00:13:27.170
  • GRANDMOTHER AND MY DAD AS A LITTLE BOY, SO GOING
  • 00:13:27.190 --> 00:13:31.010
  • WAY BACK VERY SIMILAR.
  • 00:13:31.030 --> 00:13:35.090
  • MY DAD TELLS STORIES BECAUSE HIS FATHER DIED
  • 00:13:35.110 --> 00:13:38.080
  • WHEN HE WAS 7, SO HE WAS KIND OF RAISED BY HIS
  • 00:13:38.100 --> 00:13:41.100
  • MOTHER AND HIS GRANDMOTHER, AND THAT'S
  • 00:13:41.120 --> 00:13:43.270
  • WHERE MY DAD WOULD TELL STORIES OF GRANDMA WITH
  • 00:13:43.290 --> 00:13:46.270
  • HER PIERCING BLUE EYES LOOKING AT HIM AS A YOUNG
  • 00:13:46.290 --> 00:13:48.270
  • GUY AND TEACHING THE THINGS AND THE WAYS OF
  • 00:13:48.290 --> 00:13:52.190
  • THE LORD.
  • 00:13:52.210 --> 00:13:54.280
  • ANYWAY, THERE'S A LOT OF CONNECTION OR A LOT OF
  • 00:13:55.000 --> 00:13:58.060
  • SIMILARITIES IN STORY LINE OF MY FATHER AND
  • 00:13:58.080 --> 00:14:00.290
  • YOUR FATHER'S FAMILY.
  • 00:14:01.010 --> 00:14:04.260
  • HERE WE SIT TODAY, STEVE,
  • 00:14:04.280 --> 00:14:06.180
  • AND THE STORY OF THE GREEN FAMILY LEGACY,
  • 00:14:06.200 --> 00:14:11.140
  • I THINK, IS REALLY JUST GETTING STARTED BECAUSE
  • 00:14:11.160 --> 00:14:14.260
  • JUST A FEW BLOCKS FROM WHERE WE ARE LITERALLY IN
  • 00:14:14.280 --> 00:14:23.080
  • THIS CAMERA SHOT THAT YOU SEE,
  • 00:14:23.100 --> 00:14:26.030
  • WE ARE ON THE WEST SIDE OF CAPITOL AND JUST ON
  • 00:14:26.050 --> 00:14:30.010
  • THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MALL HERE,
  • 00:14:30.030 --> 00:14:31.220
  • YOU HAVE REALLY STARTED A PROJECT,
  • 00:14:31.240 --> 00:14:34.120
  • THE MUSEUM OF THE BIBLE, THAT IS GOING TO
  • 00:14:34.140 --> 00:14:36.020
  • REVERBERATE FOR GENERATIONS TO COME.
  • 00:14:36.040 --> 00:14:38.260
  • WE WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:14:38.280 --> 00:14:41.050
  • WE WANT TO KNOW A LITTLE BIT OF THE WHY BEHIND
  • 00:14:41.070 --> 00:14:44.220
  • THIS ALSO.
  • 00:14:44.240 --> 00:14:46.160
  • SO JUST START WITH THE GENESIS OF WHERE MUSEUM
  • 00:14:46.180 --> 00:14:50.180
  • OF THE BIBLE CAME FROM.
  • 00:14:50.200 --> 00:14:52.000
  • I THINK OUR VIEWERS WOULD BE SUPER INTERESTED IN
  • 00:14:52.020 --> 00:14:54.020
  • HEARING IT DIRECTLY FROM THE GREEN FAMILY.
  • 00:14:54.040 --> 00:14:58.100
  • - WELL, BECAUSE OF THE HERITAGE THAT OUR FAMILY
  • 00:14:58.120 --> 00:15:02.130
  • HAS, WE HAVE HAD A LOVE FOR GOD'S WORD
  • 00:15:02.150 --> 00:15:04.090
  • AND FOR THE BIBLE. WE OPERATE OUR BUSINESS
  • 00:15:04.110 --> 00:15:06.180
  • ACCORDING TO BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES.
  • 00:15:06.200 --> 00:15:07.270
  • IF YOU GO ON LINE YOU'LL SEE THAT AS PART OF OUR
  • 00:15:07.290 --> 00:15:09.280
  • STATEMENT OF PURPOSE, SO WE BELIEVE THAT THE BIBLE
  • 00:15:10.000 --> 00:15:15.000
  • IS FOUNDATIONAL FOR ANYBODY TO LIVE THEIR
  • 00:15:15.020 --> 00:15:18.170
  • LIFE BY, AND IF THEY DO THAT THEIR LIFE WILL BE
  • 00:15:18.190 --> 00:15:20.250
  • MUCH BETTER FOR THAT.
  • 00:15:20.270 --> 00:15:22.070
  • SO THE IDEA OF HAVING A BIBLE MUSEUM WAS BROUGHT
  • 00:15:22.090 --> 00:15:25.020
  • UP A TIME OR TWO.
  • 00:15:25.040 --> 00:15:27.020
  • MY BROTHER, WHO STARTED A CHRISTIAN BOOKSTORE AND
  • 00:15:27.040 --> 00:15:30.050
  • OFFICE SUPPLY STORE, MENTIONED THE IDEA OF
  • 00:15:30.070 --> 00:15:33.010
  • PUTTING IN A MUSEUM AT SOME POINT BUT NOTHING
  • 00:15:33.030 --> 00:15:35.150
  • REALLY DEVELOPED.
  • 00:15:35.170 --> 00:15:37.250
  • THEN WHILE MY BROTHER WAS DOING THE MOVIE,
  • 00:15:37.270 --> 00:15:39.220
  • END OF THE SPEAR, MET WITH A GENTLEMEN THAT THE
  • 00:15:39.240 --> 00:15:43.160
  • IDEA OF THE BIBLE MUSEUM CAME UP.
  • 00:15:43.180 --> 00:15:45.050
  • MATT CROUCH: WHAT YEAR MIGHT THAT HAVE BEEN ROUGHLY?
  • 00:15:45.070 --> 00:15:47.220
  • STEVE GREEN: THAT PROBABLY WOULD HAVE BEEN MID 2000,
  • 00:15:47.240 --> 00:15:52.280
  • 2004 OR '05, MAYBE SOMEWHERE IN THERE.
  • 00:15:53.000 --> 00:15:55.260
  • AND THE IDEA OF A MUSEUM CAME UP AND THERE WAS A
  • 00:15:55.280 --> 00:16:01.200
  • GROUP OF GUYS WANTING TO PUT IN A BIBLE MUSEUM IN
  • 00:16:01.220 --> 00:16:03.170
  • DALLAS. SO I SAID WELL WE MIGHT BE WILLING
  • 00:16:03.190 --> 00:16:05.180
  • TO HELP IN THAT EFFORT.
  • 00:16:05.200 --> 00:16:09.190
  • NOTHING HAPPENED FOR A FEW YEARS.
  • 00:16:09.210 --> 00:16:11.210
  • THEN THEY MENTIONED AN ARTIFACT THAT WE COULD
  • 00:16:11.230 --> 00:16:13.060
  • BUY AT A REAL GOOD DEAL, AND I SAID WE MIGHT BE
  • 00:16:13.080 --> 00:16:15.130
  • WILLING TO BUY THAT FOR THE MUSEUM PROJECT.
  • 00:16:15.150 --> 00:16:18.070
  • AND WHILE WE NEVER GOT THAT PARTICULAR ITEM,
  • 00:16:18.090 --> 00:16:20.250
  • IT OPENED THE DOOR FOR THEM TO START ASKING
  • 00:16:20.270 --> 00:16:22.160
  • AROUND OF WHAT MIGHT BE AVAILABLE.
  • 00:16:22.180 --> 00:16:24.120
  • THIS WAS ABOUT IN '09 WHEN WE BOUGHT OUR FIRST
  • 00:16:24.140 --> 00:16:26.130
  • ARTIFACT. THE ECONOMY HAD TANKED.
  • 00:16:26.150 --> 00:16:29.070
  • PEOPLE WERE NEEDING TO TURN SOME OF THEIR
  • 00:16:29.090 --> 00:16:31.150
  • COLLECTION INTO CASH.
  • 00:16:31.170 --> 00:16:33.210
  • SO EVERYTHING FROM A SINGLE ITEM AT AN AUCTION
  • 00:16:33.230 --> 00:16:36.190
  • AT SOTHEBY'S OR CHRISTIE'S TO A GENTLEMAN THAT HAD
  • 00:16:36.210 --> 00:16:40.060
  • COLLECTED FOR 30 YEARS, HAD 10.000 ITEMS
  • 00:16:40.080 --> 00:16:42.200
  • AND HE SOLD US HIS WHOLE COLLECTION.
  • 00:16:42.220 --> 00:16:44.240
  • SO WE HAD NEVER ANTICIPATED BEING ABLE TO
  • 00:16:44.260 --> 00:16:48.130
  • ACQUIRE AS MUCH AS WE DID AS QUICKLY AS WE DID,
  • 00:16:48.150 --> 00:16:50.230
  • BUT OPPORTUNITY PRESENTED ITSELF AND WE WERE ABLE
  • 00:16:50.250 --> 00:16:52.220
  • TO ACQUIRE A LOT OF ARTIFACTS.
  • 00:16:52.240 --> 00:16:54.230
  • THAT'S WHEN THE FAMILY FELT THE SENSE OF
  • 00:16:54.250 --> 00:16:56.210
  • RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:16:56.230 --> 00:16:58.020
  • WE'VE BEEN ENTRUSTED WITH THIS COLLECTION WE WANT
  • 00:16:58.040 --> 00:17:00.070
  • TO BE SURE TO HELP STEWARD IT ALONG AND KIND
  • 00:17:00.090 --> 00:17:02.110
  • OF CAME ALONGSIDE.
  • 00:17:02.130 --> 00:17:04.200
  • SO WE OPENED IT UP TO A COUPLE MORE CITIES,
  • 00:17:04.220 --> 00:17:07.240
  • AS I SAID WE STARTED THESE GUYS WERE LOOKING
  • 00:17:07.260 --> 00:17:10.110
  • IN DALLAS.
  • 00:17:10.130 --> 00:17:11.260
  • WE DID A SURVEY, WELL I LOOKED AT THE TOP TEN
  • 00:17:11.280 --> 00:17:14.260
  • METROS AND THE OTHER TWO METROS THAT STOOD OUT TO
  • 00:17:14.280 --> 00:17:16.290
  • ME WERE NEW YORK CITY AND WASHINGTON D.C. SO WE
  • 00:17:17.010 --> 00:17:19.050
  • STARTED LOOKING IN ALL THREE CITIES.
  • 00:17:19.070 --> 00:17:21.120
  • AND THEN WE DID A SURVEY, THE QUESTION WAS IF WE
  • 00:17:21.140 --> 00:17:25.050
  • BUILD IT, WOULD THEY COME?
  • 00:17:25.070 --> 00:17:27.030
  • AND THE SURVEY SHOWED OVERWHELMINGLY THERE WAS
  • 00:17:27.050 --> 00:17:28.190
  • AN INTEREST IN A BIBLE MUSEUM.
  • 00:17:28.210 --> 00:17:30.240
  • BUT IT ALSO SHOWED IT WOULD BE BEST ATTENDED
  • 00:17:30.260 --> 00:17:33.070
  • HERE IN WASHINGTON D.C. AND THAT REALLY MAKES SENSE.
  • 00:17:33.090 --> 00:17:36.020
  • THIS IS THE HUB OF MUSEUMS IN OUR NATION.
  • 00:17:36.040 --> 00:17:38.270
  • SO WE FIND AS A RETAILER, WE DO BEST WHERE OTHER
  • 00:17:38.290 --> 00:17:42.060
  • SIMILAR TYPE RETAIL IS.
  • 00:17:42.080 --> 00:17:44.140
  • THERE'S ALWAYS RESTAURANTS CONGREGATE
  • 00:17:44.160 --> 00:17:46.010
  • TOGETHER BECAUSE THEY DO BETTER WHEN THERE'S A
  • 00:17:46.030 --> 00:17:48.160
  • RESTAURANT ROW.
  • 00:17:48.180 --> 00:17:50.190
  • SO IT MADE SENSE WE WOULD DO BEST RIGHT HERE IN
  • 00:17:50.210 --> 00:17:53.130
  • WASHINGTON D.C. SO WE STARTED LOOKING HERE,
  • 00:17:53.150 --> 00:17:57.110
  • FOCUSED OUR LOOK HERE IN D.C. AND THEN IN 2012,
  • 00:17:57.130 --> 00:18:01.050
  • THE FACILITY CAME UP FOR SALE THAT WE ARE IN
  • 00:18:01.070 --> 00:18:04.180
  • PROCESS OF CONVERTING TODAY.
  • 00:18:04.200 --> 00:18:06.290
  • IT'S JUST TWO BLOCKS SOUTH OF THE AIR AND
  • 00:18:07.010 --> 00:18:08.250
  • SPACE MUSEUM, WHICH IS ONE OF THE MOST ATTENDED
  • 00:18:08.270 --> 00:18:10.210
  • MUSEUMS IN THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:18:10.230 --> 00:18:12.160
  • METRO STOP COMING UP THERE IN THE SAME BLOCK.
  • 00:18:12.180 --> 00:18:14.290
  • SO A GREAT LOCATION.
  • 00:18:15.010 --> 00:18:17.000
  • WITH A NOT QUITE AS GOOD A VIEW BUT SIMILAR VIEW
  • 00:18:17.020 --> 00:18:19.050
  • OF THE CAPITOL FROM THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE MALL.
  • 00:18:19.070 --> 00:18:21.290
  • MATT CROUCH: YOUR FAMILY SEEMS AS IF YOU KIND OF ALMOST
  • 00:18:22.010 --> 00:18:28.020
  • STUMBLED INTO THIS, AND THEN THE ECONOMY ALMOST
  • 00:18:28.040 --> 00:18:32.180
  • KIND OF MET YOU AT THE TIME.
  • 00:18:32.200 --> 00:18:36.020
  • THIS SEEMS TO BE MAYBE SOME DIVINE INTERVENTION
  • 00:18:36.040 --> 00:18:39.270
  • GOING ON HERE, AND I'M SURE YOU WOULD AGREE WITH
  • 00:18:39.290 --> 00:18:42.250
  • THAT. WHAT'S INTERESTING IS YOU'RE THE PRESIDENT OF
  • 00:18:42.270 --> 00:18:47.130
  • HOBBY LOBBY, AND SO OUR VIEWERS MIGHT NOT
  • 00:18:47.150 --> 00:18:51.240
  • UNDERSTAND THE SCALE OF WHAT YOU'RE TALKING
  • 00:18:51.260 --> 00:18:55.080
  • ABOUT, YOU KNOW, ANYBODY COULD GOOGLE
  • 00:18:55.100 --> 00:18:59.120
  • HOBBY LOBBY AND ANYBODY CAN GOOGLE--
  • 00:18:59.140 --> 00:19:02.280
  • WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY IS THE AMOUNT OF
  • 00:19:03.000 --> 00:19:04.240
  • RESOURCES THAT YOU'RE PUTTING INTO THIS IS
  • 00:19:04.260 --> 00:19:07.140
  • STUNNING. ARE YOU MAKING THAT PUBLIC IN REGARD
  • 00:19:07.160 --> 00:19:10.170
  • TO WHAT THIS PROJECT IS REALLY COSTING?
  • 00:19:10.190 --> 00:19:13.050
  • - WE'VE NOT NECESSARILY DISCUSSED WHAT OUR FAMILY
  • 00:19:13.070 --> 00:19:15.060
  • IS PUTTING INTO IT, BUT WITH ALL THE INITIATIVES
  • 00:19:15.080 --> 00:19:18.020
  • WE HAVE, THAT WE'RE WORKING ON,
  • 00:19:18.040 --> 00:19:20.070
  • WE'VE DONE TRAVELING EXHIBITS IN OTHER NATIONS
  • 00:19:20.090 --> 00:19:23.250
  • AROUND THE WORLD, OBVIOUSLY THE MUSEUM IS
  • 00:19:23.270 --> 00:19:25.210
  • CORE TO WHAT WE'RE DOING,
  • 00:19:25.230 --> 00:19:28.070
  • BUT WE ALSO HAVE RESEARCH AND EDUCATION GOING ON,
  • 00:19:28.090 --> 00:19:31.100
  • AND OVER A FIVE YEAR PERIOD,
  • 00:19:31.120 --> 00:19:33.200
  • WE'RE THINKING THAT THERE'S ABOUT A BILLION
  • 00:19:33.220 --> 00:19:35.110
  • DOLLAR FUNDRAISING EFFORT THAT NEEDS TO BE
  • 00:19:35.130 --> 00:19:38.220
  • MADE, SO WE'VE BEEN OUT TELLING OUR STORY ALL
  • 00:19:38.240 --> 00:19:42.150
  • ACROSS THE COUNTRY, AND LAST COUPLE OF YEARS WE
  • 00:19:42.170 --> 00:19:44.110
  • HAD OVER 160 EVENTS HERE IN THE U.S.
  • 00:19:44.130 --> 00:19:47.070
  • AS WELL AS LOCATIONS AROUND THE WORLD SHARING
  • 00:19:47.090 --> 00:19:50.010
  • ABOUT THE IDEA OF THIS MUSEUM BECAUSE ONE THING
  • 00:19:50.030 --> 00:19:52.270
  • THAT I WAS CONVINCED OF IS THAT THIS,
  • 00:19:52.290 --> 00:19:55.150
  • WHILE OUR FAMILY HAS A LOVE FOR THIS BOOK,
  • 00:19:55.170 --> 00:19:56.280
  • THIS BOOK IS NOT OUR FAMILY'S.
  • 00:19:57.000 --> 00:19:58.150
  • THIS IS A BOOK THAT PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD
  • 00:19:58.170 --> 00:20:01.180
  • HAVE A LOVE AND A PASSION FOR,
  • 00:20:01.200 --> 00:20:03.020
  • AND I WAS CONVINCED THAT THERE WOULD BE PEOPLE
  • 00:20:03.040 --> 00:20:05.060
  • THAT WOULD WANT TO SAY I WANT TO BE A PART OF
  • 00:20:05.080 --> 00:20:07.010
  • THIS, AND WE WANTED TO INVITE PEOPLE TO BE A
  • 00:20:07.030 --> 00:20:09.150
  • PART OF THIS MUSEUM TO CELEBRATE THIS BOOK THAT
  • 00:20:09.170 --> 00:20:13.040
  • WE ALL LOVE.
  • 00:20:13.060 --> 00:20:15.090
  • MATT CROUCH: BUT YOU'RE BEING VERY MODEST BECAUSE YOUR
  • 00:20:15.110 --> 00:20:19.130
  • FAMILY IS KIND OF SHOULDERING THE LION'S
  • 00:20:19.150 --> 00:20:22.170
  • SHARE OF THIS, AND YOU'RE ALLOWING SOME OF US TO BE
  • 00:20:22.190 --> 00:20:25.140
  • A PART AND TO THE VIEWERS WATCHING THIS BROADCAST,
  • 00:20:25.160 --> 00:20:28.080
  • IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF THE MUSEUM OF THE
  • 00:20:28.100 --> 00:20:29.230
  • BIBLE, CONTACT THE INFORMATION ON THE SCREEN
  • 00:20:29.250 --> 00:20:32.200
  • AND BE A PART OF THAT.
  • 00:20:32.220 --> 00:20:33.280
  • WE WANT EVERYONE INVOLVED.
  • 00:20:34.000 --> 00:20:36.250
  • BUT THE GREEN FAMILY, THIS IS GONNA HAPPEN WITH
  • 00:20:36.270 --> 00:20:39.290
  • OR WITHOUT THEIR HELP, AND THE BUILDING IS
  • 00:20:40.010 --> 00:20:42.250
  • SITTING OVER THERE, AND CONSTRUCTION IS GOING ON
  • 00:20:42.270 --> 00:20:45.020
  • EVERY DAY, AND THERE'S GUYS CRAWLING ALL OVER
  • 00:20:45.040 --> 00:20:47.290
  • THAT BUILDING WITH HARD HATS ON,
  • 00:20:48.010 --> 00:20:50.040
  • AND THIS IS A THING AND IT'S GONNA OPEN AND IT'S
  • 00:20:50.060 --> 00:20:53.000
  • GONNA BE FOR EVERYONE WHEN?
  • 00:20:53.020 --> 00:20:55.100
  • - WE ARE SHOOTING TO OPEN NOVEMBER 17 OF THIS
  • 00:20:55.120 --> 00:20:58.040
  • YEAR, SO JUST LATER THIS YEAR.
  • 00:20:58.060 --> 00:21:00.100
  • WE'VE GOT A LOT OF WORK GOING ON,
  • 00:21:00.120 --> 00:21:02.010
  • OVER 500 CONSTRUCTION WORKERS WORKING ON A
  • 00:21:02.030 --> 00:21:04.150
  • DAILY BASIS THERE, SO WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT THE
  • 00:21:04.170 --> 00:21:07.140
  • PUBLIC OPENING NOVEMBER 17.
  • 00:21:07.160 --> 00:21:10.080
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:21:10.100 --> 00:21:11.240
  • NOW, AS WE SIT HERE EARLIER IN '17,
  • 00:21:11.260 --> 00:21:16.030
  • IS THAT GONNA SHIFT POSSIBLY, NOVEMBER,
  • 00:21:16.050 --> 00:21:19.260
  • OR IS THAT KIND OF LIKE YOU'RE GONNA OPEN IT
  • 00:21:19.280 --> 00:21:21.260
  • WHETHER IT'S COMPLETELY DONE OR NOT KIND OF THING.
  • 00:21:21.280 --> 00:21:24.250
  • - WE HAVE SHOT FOR NOVEMBER OF THIS YEAR
  • 00:21:24.270 --> 00:21:28.170
  • SINCE WE'VE BEEN STARTING THIS PROJECT,
  • 00:21:28.190 --> 00:21:30.070
  • AND CLARK CONSTRUCTION WHO IS THE CONSTRUCTION
  • 00:21:30.090 --> 00:21:33.100
  • COMPANY DOING THE RENOVATION AND THE
  • 00:21:33.120 --> 00:21:35.270
  • CONSTRUCTION WORK HAS DONE A PHENOMENAL JOB OF
  • 00:21:35.290 --> 00:21:38.150
  • MAINTAINING THAT DATE.
  • 00:21:38.170 --> 00:21:40.260
  • TYPICALLY, CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS LIKE THIS,
  • 00:21:40.280 --> 00:21:42.110
  • IT DOES GET DELAYED, BUT SO FAR WE HAVE MAINTAINED
  • 00:21:42.130 --> 00:21:45.120
  • THAT. WE'VE GOTTEN BEHIND A LITTLE BIT AT TIMES AND
  • 00:21:45.140 --> 00:21:48.050
  • THEN CAUGHT UP AND GOT AHEAD IN SOME AREAS,
  • 00:21:48.070 --> 00:21:51.180
  • SO WHILE THERE'S STILL A LOT OF WORK TO BE DONE,
  • 00:21:51.200 --> 00:21:54.010
  • WE ARE STILL ANTICIPATING BEING ABLE TO OPEN
  • 00:21:54.030 --> 00:21:56.000
  • NOVEMBER 17, AND THERE WILL ALWAYS BE THINGS TO
  • 00:21:56.020 --> 00:22:00.200
  • WRAP UP AND WE JUST HOPE THAT WE WILL HAVE FOR THE
  • 00:22:00.220 --> 00:22:04.200
  • MOST PART THINGS PRETTY WELL WRAPPED UP
  • 00:22:04.220 --> 00:22:06.000
  • AND READY TO OPEN.
  • 00:22:06.020 --> 00:22:08.020
  • MATT: SO WHEN WE GO INTO THE MUSEUM OF THE BIBLE,
  • 00:22:08.040 --> 00:22:12.000
  • IT JUST ON THE SURFACE, WHAT ARE WE GONNA SEE
  • 00:22:12.020 --> 00:22:19.210
  • DIFFERENTLY THAN LET'S SAY THE OTHER MUSEUM OF
  • 00:22:19.230 --> 00:22:23.150
  • THE BIBLE THAT MIGHT BE SOMEWHERE ELSE IN PART OF
  • 00:22:23.170 --> 00:22:25.210
  • THE WORLD, NOT NAMED THAT EXACTLY,
  • 00:22:25.230 --> 00:22:27.100
  • BUT I'M SURE THERE ARE OTHER DISPLAYS OR
  • 00:22:27.120 --> 00:22:30.190
  • ATTRACTIONS THAT HAVE BIBLES ON DISPLAY.
  • 00:22:30.210 --> 00:22:33.040
  • THIS ONE IS GONNA BE DIFFERENT HOW?
  • 00:22:33.060 --> 00:22:35.210
  • STEVE: WELL, ONE OF THE OUR CHALLENGES IS THIS BOOK
  • 00:22:35.230 --> 00:22:37.160
  • HAS THE MOST INCREDIBLE STORY TO BE TOLD,
  • 00:22:37.180 --> 00:22:40.120
  • BUT TO LOOK AT A BOOK UNDER A GLASS CASE IN A
  • 00:22:40.140 --> 00:22:43.120
  • LANGUAGE THAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND DOESN'T REALLY
  • 00:22:43.140 --> 00:22:46.220
  • GRAB MY ATTENTION FOR VERY LONG.
  • 00:22:46.240 --> 00:22:48.130
  • I CAN READ ABOUT IT, BUT SO OUR JOB IS TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:22:48.150 --> 00:22:51.130
  • MAKE THIS STORY COME ALIVE AND TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:22:51.150 --> 00:22:53.230
  • TELL ITS STORY IN AN ENGAGING WAY.
  • 00:22:53.250 --> 00:22:56.070
  • THE WAY WE'RE GOING TO DO THAT IS THROUGH A LOT OF
  • 00:22:56.090 --> 00:22:58.190
  • TECHNOLOGY. SO THIS MUSEUM I ANTICIPATE BEING THE MOST
  • 00:22:58.210 --> 00:23:03.050
  • TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED MUSEUM THAT HAS BEEN BUILT.
  • 00:23:03.070 --> 00:23:06.150
  • IT WILL BE THE MOST NEWEST ONE WHEN WE OPEN,
  • 00:23:06.170 --> 00:23:10.030
  • SO WE HAVE THE ADVANTAGE OF LEARNING FROM
  • 00:23:10.050 --> 00:23:12.030
  • EVERYBODY ELSE AND THEN RAISING THAT BAR.
  • 00:23:12.050 --> 00:23:14.160
  • BUT THERE ARE SOME TECHNOLOGIES THAT WE WILL
  • 00:23:14.180 --> 00:23:16.170
  • BE USING, INDOOR GPS THAT IS HAVING TO BE BUILT FOR
  • 00:23:16.190 --> 00:23:20.030
  • US BECAUSE IT DOESN'T EXIST.
  • 00:23:20.050 --> 00:23:22.180
  • SO WE HAVE SOME TECHNOLOGY THAT IS GOING
  • 00:23:22.200 --> 00:23:24.270
  • TO HELP US BE ABLE TO TELL THIS STORY IN AN
  • 00:23:24.290 --> 00:23:27.130
  • ENGAGING WAY FOR AUDIENCES OF ALL AGES.
  • 00:23:27.150 --> 00:23:31.240
  • SOMEBODY THAT'S A KID THAT'S TECH SAVVY THAT'S
  • 00:23:31.260 --> 00:23:35.290
  • USED TO LOOKING AT A TABLET OR IPAD,
  • 00:23:36.010 --> 00:23:39.270
  • THEY WILL BE ABLE TO COME IN AND VISITORS ARE
  • 00:23:39.290 --> 00:23:43.210
  • ISSUED TABLETS FOR THEM TO PERSONALIZE THEIR
  • 00:23:43.230 --> 00:23:46.240
  • TOUR, AND HAVE VOLUMES OF INFORMATION THAT WILL BE
  • 00:23:46.260 --> 00:23:50.260
  • AVAILABLE TO THEM SO THEY CAN GO AS DEEP AS THEY
  • 00:23:50.280 --> 00:23:52.220
  • WANT WHEREVER THEY WANT TO,
  • 00:23:52.240 --> 00:23:54.140
  • OR BE ABLE TO TAKE THAT INFORMATION WITH THEM.
  • 00:23:54.160 --> 00:23:57.100
  • LET'S SAY THEY'RE LOOKING AT AN ARTIFACT AND THEY WANT
  • 00:23:57.120 --> 00:23:59.290
  • TO KNOW MORE AND WE'VE GOT PAGES OF INFORMATION
  • 00:24:00.030 --> 00:24:02.050
  • AND THEY DON'T HAVE TIME, SO THEY CAN GRAB
  • 00:24:02.070 --> 00:24:03.220
  • INFORMATION, TAKE TO A FILE,
  • 00:24:03.240 --> 00:24:05.220
  • WHEN THEY TURN THAT TABLET IN YOU CAN PRINT
  • 00:24:05.240 --> 00:24:08.060
  • IT OUT FOR THEM OR EMAIL IT TO THEIR EMAIL ADDRESS
  • 00:24:08.080 --> 00:24:10.230
  • AND READ WHEN THEY'RE BACK AT HOME.
  • 00:24:10.250 --> 00:24:13.120
  • SO THE IDEA IS TO INSPIRE PEOPLE.
  • 00:24:13.140 --> 00:24:15.250
  • WE WANT TO INVITE ALL PEOPLE TO ENGAGE WITH
  • 00:24:15.270 --> 00:24:18.130
  • THIS BOOK.
  • 00:24:18.150 --> 00:24:20.020
  • THAT IS OUR SHORT SUMMARY OF WHAT WE ARE WANTING TO
  • 00:24:20.040 --> 00:24:23.060
  • DO. HOPEFULLY NOT ONLY WHILE THEY'RE THERE WILL THEY
  • 00:24:23.080 --> 00:24:25.220
  • LEARN SOMETHING, BUT THEY WILL BE MOTIVATED ONCE
  • 00:24:25.240 --> 00:24:27.270
  • THEY LEAVE THERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK.
  • 00:24:27.290 --> 00:24:31.030
  • AND WE WILL PROVIDE A LOT OF INFORMATION FOR THEM
  • 00:24:31.050 --> 00:24:32.220
  • IF THEY WANT TO.
  • 00:24:32.240 --> 00:24:34.080

  • THERE'S A FLOOR THAT TALKS ABOUT ITS HISTORY.
  • 00:27:22.140 --> 00:27:24.140
  • WE WANT PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THIS BOOK HAS
  • 00:27:24.160 --> 00:27:26.150
  • MORE MANUSCRIPT EVIDENCE THAN ALL THE MAJOR
  • 00:27:26.170 --> 00:27:28.120
  • CLASSICAL WORK COMBINED AND HERE'S THE EVIDENCE.
  • 00:27:28.140 --> 00:27:31.140
  • THE NARRATIVE FLOOR.
  • 00:27:31.160 --> 00:27:32.290
  • WE THINK PEOPLE OUGHT TO KNOW WHAT IS THE BASIC
  • 00:27:33.010 --> 00:27:35.100
  • STORY OF THIS BOOK.
  • 00:27:35.120 --> 00:27:36.200
  • AND THEN THE IMPACT.
  • 00:27:36.220 --> 00:27:38.250
  • THIS BOOK HAS HAD AN IMPACT IN EVERY AREA OF

  • LIFE. THE AVERAGE PERSON PROBABLY HAS NO CLUE TO
  • 00:27:41.280 --> 00:27:45.050
  • THE DEGREE THAT THIS BOOK HAS IMPACTED THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:27:45.070 --> 00:27:47.260
