Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One thousand years older than any existing manuscripts, The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible presents the world’ s most precious and ancient version of the Bible as it was in the time ofJesus. Preserving parts of all but one biblical book, scrolls confirm that the text of the Old Testament as it has been handed down through the ages is largely correct though with some important differfences. The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible presents all 220 of the Dead Sea biblical scrolls, arranged to be read in canonical order. Commentary by the editors provides insight into the rich cultural and religious traditions behind the scrolls and the Bible itself.

Synopsis:

From the dramatic find in the caves of Qumran, the world's most ancient version of the Bible allows us to read the scriptures as they were in the time of Jesus.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [647]-649).

Fascinating. Incredible scholarship. Eye-opening view of minor and major variations between original language versions of the Old Testament. An inspiration to learn more.
