Green, the president of Hobby Lobby, serves as chairman of the board for the recently opened Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. and is the leader behind one of the world's largest private collections of rare biblical artifacts known as the Green Collection.

As chairman of the Museum of the Bible, Green assembled academics, designers and professionals who helped create the 430,000-square-foot, $500 million facility that opened in November just three blocks from the U.S. Capitol.

The museum is home to a number of things such as a page from a first edition Gutenberg Bible, a Bible signed and inscribed by Martin Luther, Abraham Lincoln's Bible and Elvis Presley's Bible.

One of the most controversial pieces in the museum is a collection of fragments that purport to be a part of the Dead Sea Scrolls, which are believed to be the oldest surviving fragments of biblical accounts.

While critics have questioned the authenticity of the fragments, the museum has indicated that research into the fragments is still ongoing.
