The Dead Sea Scrolls

The Dead Sea Scrolls are a set of scrolls, fragments of papyrus, scrolls, etc., found in the caves of Qumran, along the cliffs of the northwest corner of the Dead Sea, in Israel. They were first discovered by a Bedouin shepherd in 1947. The manuscripts from Cave 1 were 1,000 years older than any known manuscripts at the time, dating back to about 500 B.C.

It is commonly asserted by scholars throughout the world that the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls has changed the way we view the Bible and the Christian and Jewish faiths forever.
