The Dead Sea Scrolls discovery is one of the most important finds to confirm that the Bible was handed down accurately over the centuries. A few people believe (wrongly) that the Dead Sea Scrolls were the originals of the Bible. They are actually the oldest copies we have of portions of the Old Testament.

The Dead Seas Scrolls are very important to Christians.
1. They support the reliability of the Old Testament.
2. They show what life was like at the time of Jesus (gives information about the society, the Pharisees, and the leadership).
Here’s how to get the most out of the exhibit:
We recommend this pamphlet to explain the Dead Sea Scrolls in easy-to-understand language. It includes—
1. How and when the Scrolls were found.
2. What the Dead Sea Scrolls are. (Some people mistakenly believe that the Dead Sea Scrolls are the originals of the Bible. They are not.)
3. How the Scrolls demonstrate the accuracy of Bible translation over the centuries.
4. How to read a Dead Sea Scroll’s scientific name and learn what it means. (It’s easier than you might think!)
5. What life in Israel at the time of Jesus was like, and why the Scrolls emphasize the coming Messiah.
6. A map of the location and close ups of the many caves.
7. A time line that shows the history of the DSS.
