I’ve been hearing on the radio how the Dead Sea Scrolls are available for viewing in the Metroplex. It would be very interesting to go see them! The Dead Sea Scrolls contain Isaiah (a book of the Bible in the Old Testament) which was written approximately 597-538 BC. It’s fascinating to me that ancient writings of God’s Word were preserved for centuries in the caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. Here’s just one verse from Isaiah:
Isaiah 40:22: God sits on his throne above the circle of the earth, and compared to him, people are like grasshoppers. The world was thought to be flat until the 1400’s, but nearly two thousand years before that, the prophet of God named Isaiah (inspired by God) wrote about the circle of the earth, and God preserved the writings of Isaiah in the caves. Amazing!
