Jan. 30 - Feb. 2: Oral Roberts University Hosts Sacra Pagina ("The Sacred Page") Free Exhibit

The Green Collection Brings More than 50 of World's Rarest Biblical Texts & Artifacts to Tulsa

The Green CollectionMany Oklahomans have heard of The Green Collection, the world's largest private collection of rare biblical texts and artifacts. The ever-growing, non-sectarian compilation of more than 40,000 biblical antiquities is named for the Oklahoma City-based family who founded national arts and crafts retailer Hobby Lobby.

On Jan. 30-Feb. 2, Oral Roberts University is hosting a free exhibit featuring more than 50 select items in the internationally known collection. These artifacts are of great historical and biblical significance and will give Tulsans of all interests a free look at the history of the Bible - a book that has altered history, shaped culture, inspired minds and changed lives.

In conjunction with the exhibit, internationally acclaimed expert on biblical manuscripts and ancient history Dr. Jerry Pattengale will deliver a free lecture on Jan. 30 from 11:15 a.m.-12:00 p.m. in the West Meeting Room South Lobby at the Mabee Center. This lecture is free and open to the public, but tickets must be reserved due to limited seating. An 11-week lecture series held in 2011 in Oklahoma City "sold out" within days.
