Hello My Friend and Welcome:
Unquestionably the greatest archaelogical discovery of the Twentieth Century was the Dead Sea Scrolls in the caves of Qumran. After the New Year, we plan to do a series of posts about the Scrolls...why and how they were preserved, what they've taught us, the community that created them and so on. However, there is on very exciting development that I want to share with you today.
In an announcement timed to co-incide with Rash HaShanah, the Jewish New Year, the world was told that through a co-operative effort of Google and the Jewish Museum devoted to the Dead Sea Scrolls they have been made available on-line. That's right. You can now examine digital copies of the scrolls on-line at your convenience. Click below to see a video about the site.
We'll have lots of additional information about the Scrolls and the insights they provide into the Bible and the Early Church after the First of the Year. In the meantime, I encourage you to visit the site and look it over. You can access the Dead Sea Scroll site AT http://dss.collections.imj.org.il/
Until next time, We wish you Peace and Blessings.
