GOD Breathed Evidence - The Dead Sea Scrolls
Many people ask the question!
Can you prove the Bible is true?
How do you know it is?
Show me the evidence!
Well my question to them is.......
How can you prove the Bible is not true??
It seems many have tried to disprove it, and many have failed.
I have recently listened to a professor speak on the magnificent find of the Dead Sea Scrolls,
What an amazing discovery of Bible truths.
The Dead Sea Scrolls are a collection of about 900 documents, including texts from the Hebrew Bible, discovered between 1947 and 1956 in eleven caves in and around the ruins of the ancient settlement of Khirbet Qumran on the northwest shore of the Dead Sea in the West Bank.
In 1947 a young Bedouin boy decided to climb the face of some very high cliff's near the Dead Sea, to bring back his stray goats.
His name was Juma and little did he realize his discovery of two small openings to one of the thousands of caves within the cliff, would hold a secret hidden for thousands of years.
He threw a rock into one of the openings. Hearing an unexpected cracking sound, he suspecting treasure hidden within and called to his two cousins, Khalil and Muhammed. They climbed up to listen to his exciting tale.
The younger of the three boys investigated further a few days later and was saddened to find nothing but broken old clay pots and pieces of old parchment.
Collectively found in total were 15,000 fragments from some 574 manuscripts...
All carefully written, recorded and safely stored for future discovery.
The scrolls those Bedouin boys removed would later come to be recognized as the greatest manuscript treasure ever found.
