Dead Sea Scrolls Going Online

The amazing Dead Sea Scrolls, the first discovered in 1946 in Qumran, a village situated about twenty miles east of the biblical City of Jerusalem, Israel on the shore of the Dead Sea, will be going online.  More

A young Bedouin shepherd lad, who at the time was following a goat that had gone astray, tossed a rock into one of the caves along the seacliffs and heard a noise; by “chance”, the rock had hit a ceramic pot containing the leather and papyrus scrolls which later were determined to be nearly 2,000 years old. Afterwards, during many searches, several caves around the Dead Sea were found to contain untold thousands of scroll fragments dating from the third century B.C. to A.D. 68 and representing an estimated eight hundred separate works.

The Dead Sea Scrolls contain a vast collection of Jewish documents written in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, and include many subjects and literary styles. They include manuscripts or fragments of every book in the Hebrew Bible except the Book of Esther, and  all of them were  created nearly one thousand years prior to  any previously known biblical manuscripts.

The Scrolls, hidden for over 2,000 years were in excellent condition and their significance indeed gives the world assurance in the reliability of the true world of God written in the Hebrew Bible or  Old Testament manuscripts and a testament to God and His preserving and guarding of His Word throughout the centuries of time

  1. Do you have McAfee? It is what I use and is an excellent easy to understand protection against hackers and viruses. Also, after every session on the PC, go to the safety tab on your computer, and delete all your browsing history. Then, shut down your computer and turn the power off. Bless you.
