Dead Sea Scrolls

As we look to the future, sometimes it is also good to look at the past. Here is a site that features the actual dead sea scrolls. Brilliant pictures and descriptions. It allows you to view, enlarge, scroll, etc.

Fragments of every book of the Hebrew Bible, except the Book of Esther were found in the Qumran caves, the most famous of the Dead Sea Scrolls sites. Some of these ancient copies are identical to the traditional text of the Hebrew Bible that is used today. Other copies preserve differences in the text, which was in the process of standardization.

Fascinating to see the original manuscripts. LINK


  1. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I
    guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for first-time blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

  2. Hi there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few
    of the pictures aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why but I think its a
    linking issue. I've tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.
