The Museum of the Bible is a $500 million project opening next month in Washington, D.C., but critics are already pointing out some figures and topics the museum avoids or minimizes.

From a Washington Post report (emphasis added):

Jesus is also curiously not central to the museum’s presentation of the biblical story. Visitors walk through a multi-room saga of the Old Testament, and they can visit a re-creation of a 1st-century village in Galilee where actors will tell them what the villagers think of this controversial preacher Jesus. They can watch a movie about John the Baptist. But the story of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection is almost absent.
