 Dead Sea Scrolls

I don't know if anyone here has seen this website from the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. This [url=http://www.imj.org.il/eng/shrine/]link shows the "great Isaiah scroll"[/url] scanned in photographically and presented in an interactive scrolling presentation. (It might take a few minutes to load onto your computer.) It's very fascinating to look at actual handwritten words of Isaiah recorded as by a scribe and stored in a clay jar about 200 years before the birth of our Lord.

What divine and awesome mysteries God has communicated to us within written human language.

 Re:

In conjunction with your theory, I would like to add the following excerpt;

Discoverires in the Wadi Murabba’ at area:

In 1952 the Arabs of the Ta’amireh tribe reported productive caves in the Wadi Murabba at area eleven miles sough of Qumran, and two miles west of the Dead Sea. The excavations that followed (Jan. 21 through March 3, 1952) revealed that these four caves, carved 150 feet deep in the north face of the Cliffside, had been used by refugees and guerilla bands long before David and his men camped in these or similar caverns while fleeing from Saul’s hot anger 3,000 years ago. In two of the caves the excavators found considerable written material, among which was a parchment tablet containing a list of names and numbers written in the Hebrew script of the seventh or eighth century B.C.; fragments of four leather scrolls – one of Genesis, two of Exodus, and one of Deuteronomy; a “magnificent scroll” of the minor prophets; and some letters and contracts in Hebrew, belonging to the period when the caves were occupied by an outpost of the army of Bar Kochba, leader of the second Jewish revolt against Rome in A. D. 132-35. Two of these letters were signed by Bar Kochba, “the prince of Israel,” and others were written to him.

In 1959 Dr. Yigael Yadin organized an archaeological expedition which rode in helicopters and searched the Israeli territory farther south along the west shores of the Dead Sea. They located and explored other caves used by contingents of Bar Kochba’s army. Coins were Written documents were found including one scroll fragment inscribed with Exodus 13:1-6, and another containing parts of seven lines of Psalm 15.
