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.
The Dead Sea Scrolls--------
Proof of the Bible's existence and the truth of God's Word!!

  2. This is such an informative post about the scrolls. I was a young adult when the discovery of these came about and remember the excitement of such a find.

    Your flower with the scripture is a beautiful piece of art.

  4. I've always heard of the scrolls, but have never heard of a transcript being available. Have I just looked in the wrong places, or are they just copies of our known scriptures anyway?

  6. Thank you all.
    I believe the Scrolls to be the evidence of what we know to be our Bible. There may be more or less information? Nevertheless, the proof is there.

  7. Hi Crystal Mary,
    I had no idea how the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered...this is amazing! So many people think they are fake...well if they are, why would they have been hidden? That would make no sense...This is truly a "Miracle" discovery.

    I also saw your post right below...I am from California and when I was in high school I saw Fess Parker at Disneyland with his family...He is so handsome...gosh! And very down-to-earth...it was so impressive.
    Have a beautiful day!
    Hugs,

  8. June, Faye, Rose, Georges...Love you all.

    Cindy, I cannot imgine seeing Fess Parker in the flesh. Movie stars seem so unreal. He had a certain quality and I feel he was a good choice to star as Davey. I am sure I would have been impressed also. xxx

    God bless you all.
