“You could certainly interpret it that way,” said Museum of the Bible President Cary Summers of the language-related exhibit in an interview shortly before the museum’s Friday (Nov. 17) opening. “Secular audiences will be surprised at the influence of the Bible” on many aspects of popular culture, said Seth Pollinger, director of museum content. The eight-floor museum will display around 1,600 items in its permanent exhibits — about three-quarters of them Bibles and biblical manuscripts. It also will feature separate temporary exhibitions of collections of the Israel Antiquities Authority, the Bible Lands Museum in Jerusalem and the Vatican. Museum officials had to ask partners to loan them items to complete the exhibit.
