THE STORY OF THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS
The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls has played a pivotal role in the broader field of biblical studies. The Dead Sea Scrolls present the oldest copies of biblical manuscripts and as such shed considerable light on the textual study of the Hebrew Bible. The scrolls found in Qumran give us unprecedented insights into the world of religious thought prior to the emergence of early Christianity and rabbinic Judaism. This course examines how the Dead Sea Scrolls were unearthed and why this discovery matters to us today. It also explores what the Dead Sea Scrolls tell us about the textual accuracy of the Hebrew Bible, the Jewish world of the Second Temple period, and the Jewish roots of the New Testament.
