The Digital Dead Sea Scrolls

We thought KI members might be interested in looking at digitized copies of the more well-known documents found at Qumran, commonly known as the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Israel Museum, Jerusalem and the Shrine of the Book have combined to present this extraordinary site where viewers may get a closeup view of the scrolls and learn more about them.

Many members may recall the travelling exhibit on the Scrolls that came to Grand Rapids in the spring of 2003. This is your chance to get a close-up view once again.
