Dead Sea scrolls jar

The Dead Sea Scrolls, according to the official record, in the summer of 1947, the year before the founding of the modern state of Israel, a few Bedouin boys were grazing their flocks near the Dead Sea. One of the lads, in searching for a lost goat, climbed up among the cliffs in search for the animal. Thinking that perhaps the goat had wandered into a cave that he saw, he threw a stone into the opening in an attempt to spook the goat, if it had been in there, back out. The sound that he heard from inside the cave was unexpected - the stone hit pottery.


And so it was that one of the most valuable archaeological discoveries of this century was made - a number of pottery jars in the cave contained the ancient scrolls of a hidden library dating from before the first century AD. Others have since been found in the same area.


The Dead Sea Scrolls themselves consist of copies of every book of the Hebrew Bible, with the exception of the Book of Esther, which may not yet have been considered canonical at that time. There are also a number of other non-Biblical scrolls in the collection dealing with life of the Qumran community, such as the "Manual of Discipline".
