Hobby Lobby President: How You Can Know for Sure the Bible Is True

by | Jan 15, 2020 | Revival

Hobby Lobby President and Museum of the Bible Founder Steve Green wants to clear one thing up once and for all. The Bible, perhaps the least-understood book of all time, he says, is indeed real and is indeed true.

On a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network, he told Dr. Steve Greene that the Bible not only has impacted the lives of people throughout history, but it also applies to the future of mankind, individually and corporately. There is little doubt, Green says, about the Bible’s authenticity, and every story and prophecy lead to one thing.

“There are a lot of people today who think the Bible is for another time, season or century,” Green said. “A lot of people do not believe the Bible is relevant for us today. What’s incredible for us to understand is that we’re in the middle of its story. If indeed it is true, which it is, it is also talking about our future. It is one single, unified story.

“Yet there are those who will try to minimize the fact that it is one story. In my book, This Beautiful Book, I take five main characters of the Bible—Abraham, Moses, King David, the prophet Isaiah and Jesus—and use those characters to tell the story of us. The first three were given a promise, and Isaiah has a prophecy. And they all point to Jesus.

“Abraham was promised that, through his descendants, all the nations of the world would be blessed. Moses was told another prophet like him was going to come. Through David, it was promised that someone would be on the throne forever. Isaiah, in Isaiah 53, clearly points to Jesus sand what he did on the cross. So the Bible points to one event, and that is what Christ did on the cross because of man’s sin. Our relationship was lost, and Jesus had to come and pay the price so that relationship could be restored.

“So, when we don’t know the overriding story, some of the parts and pieces of the Bible can be confusing. But when we understand the overall story, it helps to put the pieces into places, even in the more challenging parts of the Bible.”
