Secrets Revealed

  1. 1. SECRETS REVEALED The secret was hidden for centuries in silent caves. The words confirmed or denied what many held to be their dearest truths. Scrolls, stored in clay jars, had not decayed because of the dry, desert climate. For centuries the words stood as a tribute to one viewpoint or another until a shepherd boy stumbled on them looking for a lost animal. Eventually, the scrolls found their way into the hands of ancient Hebrew scholars and were labeled the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Old Testament of the Bible was up for the closest scrutiny. Would the ancient texts confirm or deny what many based their faith on? After careful scrutiny the scholars found parts or much of all the books of the Old Testament except for Esther. The only difference between the biblical texts of the Old Testament studied today and the Dead Sea Scrolls were a few minor grammatical markers. After two thousand years the meticulous and exacting nature of the Hebrew scribes was confirmed. Skeptics and critics who analyze the Dead Sea Scrolls with any degree of impartiality almost have to come to the same conclusion.
