Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1138 – The Dead Sea Scrolls at 60

The occasion gives us the opportunity to review the status of Dead Sea Scrolls scholarship, and explain once again why the Dead Sea Scrolls are one of the most important discoveries in Biblical Archaeology.

With impeccable timing, the Israel Antiquities Authority has just posted a 7-minute video with the story of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
