Synopses & Reviews
One thousand years older than any existing manuscripts, The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible presents the worlds most precious and ancient version of the Bible as it was in the time of Jesus. 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 differences. 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.
