Dr. Hélène Dallaire, Denver Seminary Professor
presenting:
“Do the Dead Sea Scrolls matter? If so, why?”

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS AND
THEIR SIGNIFICANCE FOR CHRISTIANS TODAY!

The Dead Sea Scrolls represent one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of the 20th century. In 1947, a Bedouin goat herder stumbled upon a hidden cave along the shore of the Dead Sea, near the site of the ancient settlement of Qumran. The Scrolls date from around 250 B.C. to 68 A.D. and were written in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. They contain Biblical and apocryphal works, prayers, legal texts and sectarian documents. This priceless collection of ancient manuscripts is invaluable to our understanding of the history of Judaism, the development of the Hebrew Bible, and the beginnings of Christianity.
