Deciphering the Dead Sea Scrolls
In 1947, a huge collection of ancient manuscripts were found in caves near Khirbet Qumran, just south of Jericho, on the edge of the Dead Sea. These manuscripts, totalling nearly 800, have radically altered the way scholars view both the world of Judaism in the centuries leading up to the time of Christ, and the the Bible itself.
