TULSA, Oklahoma -- An Oklahoma family known for their faith is giving the world a chance to see one of the largest private collections of Bible artifacts.

Dr. Scott Carroll helped the Green family of Hobby Lobby fame locate many of their treasures, including a page from the 23rd Psalm that is nearly 2,000 years old.

That's just one of more than 30,000 items in the collection.

Besides giving us a chance to see the collection, Carroll says the Greens are sharing it with researchers trying to better understand the Bible's long history.

"It didn't magically come down from heaven on Mount Sinai to Moses and end up in some bureau drawer at some local hotel," Dr. Carroll said.

The Green Family Collection, called "Passages," is on display right now in Oklahoma City.  It runs through October 16, 2011.
