LIFE IN EXILE
CHAPTER 6 The Precious Words Of God
The Dead Sea Scrolls
In 1947 the world-renowned Dead Sea Scroll was found inside a mountain cave south of Jericho. Consisting of approximately 600 parchment scraps of the Bible, it was written in Hebrew and Aramaic. Scientists determined they were dated from 175 A.D. to 225 A.D. They had been guarded by the Lord over the ages and through ravages, including the period of Roman persecution of Christians in the years 70 A.D. to 313 A.D. Even today the scrolls are of great referential value. We thank and praise the Heavenly Father for His wonderful guidance of those courageous saints in the clever hiding of the precious scrolls.
