They were found in a shallow cave near the northern shore of the Dead Sea by a young Bedouin goat herder. It was january 1947 when he threw a rock into a cave to get a goat out when it hit something and made a strange sound.He investigated and found a large clay jar containing strange looking bundles of cloth, greenish from age. That find has been called the greatest archaeological discovery in the twentieth century. Many scholars from different religions and even atheists have validated the find. The scrolls are the oldest Old Testament manuscripts we know of by more than 1000 years. Jesus quoted the same scriptures many times. Other material found told of the life and customs in those times which helps to validate the Scriptures of both the Old and New Testament. For me it strengthens my faith when I can look at a scroll that is over two thousand years old and when translated it reads like my King James Bible. What this means is that the Jewish Scribes that copied the Scriptures given to Moses, David and the Prophets century after century were very accurate. Some of the scrolls and other important archeological finds are on display in FT Worth till January 2113. Call 877-789-0876 or go online, SeeTheScrolls.com for information. God’s Word will abide forever and those who do His will be with Him in eternity, (1 Peter 1:25, 2 Timothy 3:16, Matthew 5:18&19, 1 John 2:17). See you in Church next week.
