Dead Sea Scrolls Digitized, Put Online
Now you, too, can have a look at the 2,000-yar-old Dead Sea Scrolls, thanks to the magic of the internet. You don't even have to go through the intense security of Tel Aviv Airport. Lucky you!
The Israel Museum, using Google technology, has digitized five of the Dead Sea Scrolls:
- Great Isaiah Scroll
- War Scroll
- Temple Scroll
- Commentary on the Habakkuk Scroll
- Community Rule Scroll
See the Dead Sea Scroll online here. The Dead Sea Scrolls, written in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek, provide the oldest evidence of the source material for the Old Testament. They were discovered in 1947 by Bedouin in Qumran, which is less than 20 miles east of Jerusalem in the West Bank.
