  7. 7. Thank you for your hard work, very valuable, we expect more discoveries! Lucy Braun said: In the DSS of Isaiah 7:14, amnwal is set forth as ONE word, meaning it is a commanded NAME, whereas the translation SPLITS it into TWO WORDS, giving the false implication that it is a title. Mayaka said: Can you please tell me why the translators corrupted the scrolls and tried to say the original scribe did it acting like those scribes didnt know what the heck they were doing seriously Елена said: Благодарю за Вашу кропотливую работу,Очень Ценно,будем Ждать ещё открытий! James Allen said:Thank You. israelmuseumjerusalem (mod) said: @Ca2jarman, there are no immediate plans for further translations. Ca2jarman said: When will the other scrolls be translated in English?? Thanks for your work Ca2jarman said: Wow amazing Ching Ding said: @Robo,I totes agree with u. Chin Ding said: WoW. What cool scrolls. Ezra said:BCE mean "before the common era" CE means "common era" This common era describes the point of time Christians, the assumed birth of their savior.

  9. 9. The images shown here pertain to four main groups 1. Inscriptions alluding to figures from the Book of Isaiah. Obviously these are few and far between. They include Hezekiah, King of Juda, Sennacherib, King of Assyria, and others. SEAL IMPRESSION "(BELONGING) TO HEZEKIAH (SON OF) AHAZ KING OF JUDAH" Judah, 8th century BCE, clay Collection of The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Photo © The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, by Peter Lanyi 1:1 The prophecies of Isaiah son of amoz, who prophesied concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah
  10. 10. The images shown here pertain to four main groups 1. Inscriptions alluding to figures from the Book of Isaiah. Obviously these are few and far between. They include Hezekiah, King of Juda, Sennacherib, King of Assyria, and others. 36:1 In the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah, King Sennacherib of Assyria marched against all the fortified towns of Judah and seized them SENNACHERIB PRISM Nineveh, Assyria, 691 BCE, baked clay In this inscription (in cuneiform script), King Sennacherib of Assyria boasts of several military campaigns, amongst these, the war against Judah: “And Hezekiah, King of Judah, who did not submit to my yoke, I laid siege to 46 of his strong cities, walled forts, and to the countless small villages in their vicinity . . . I besieged them and conquered them.” He describes the booty he seized and the numbers of captives he took – more than 200,000. Of the siege on King Hezekiah in Jerusalem, he writes: “I made him a prisoner, like a bird in a cage.” Though Jerusalem was not destroyed, Hezekiah was forced to resume paying heavy tribute to Assyria.

  11. 11. 2. Inscriptions referring to people and official functions with the same names as those appearing in the Book of Isaiah, but clearly not indicating the same people. These attest to the widespread use of the names from the prophets' period found in authentic, material artifacts that are mentioned in the biblical book. 3:7 The other will there upon protest, "œI will not be a dresser of wounds, With no food or clothing in my own house. You shall not make me chief of a people!" A REAPER'S PLEA Mezad Hashavyahu, 7th century BCE, ink on pottery A glimpse into the biblical justice system (Exodus 22:25–26) is provided by this Hebrew letter, which contains a reaper's plea to the governor to have his personal property (a cloak) returned. The cloak had been confiscated by an official under the pretext that the reaper did not complete the harvest of an assigned quota. The repetition of various words and phrases suggests that the letter was dictated in a hurry, and the cursive script indicates that it was written by a professional scribe.

  12. 12. 3.Objects and utensils that were in use at the time of the Prophet, the likes of which could have been used by the Prophet himself – for example, cultic objects, jewelry, every-day artifacts and others. There is no doubt that these objects would have been in the Prophet’s vicinity, and would have provided the material context to his prophecies. 27:9  Assuredly, by this alone Shall Jacob's sin be purged away; This  is the only price For removing his guilt: That he make all the altar- stones Like shattered blocks of chalk With no sacred post left  standing, Nor any incense altar. FEMALE FIGURINES Judah, 8th–6th century BCE, pottery Such figurines, with pronounced breasts, were found mainly in private dwellings. Usually identified with either the goddess Astarte or the goddess Asherah, they were kept as household amulets to enhance fertility and offer protection during childbirth.

  13. 13. 3.Objects and utensils that were in use at the time of the Prophet, the likes of which could have been used by the Prophet himself – for example, cultic objects, jewelry, every-day artifacts and others. There is no doubt that these objects would have been in the Prophet’s vicinity, and would have provided the material context to his prophecies. 29:11  So that all prophecy has been to you Like the  words of a sealed document. If it is handed to one  who can read and he is asked to read it, he will  say, "œI can't, because it is sealed"; SEALS Judah and neighboring lands, 8th–6th century BCE, semi-precious stones, bone, silver, bronze and gold Collections of The Israel Museum, Jerusalem & of Israel Antiquities Authority, Photo © The Israel Museum
  14. 14. 4. Various symbols (mainly animals and plants) which the prophet drew upon metaphorically. These symbols were also prevalent in Ancient Near Eastern art of this period, as the discoveries prove. 1:3  An ox knows its owner, an ass its master's  crib: Israel does not know, My people takes no  thought." DONKEY FIGURINE Achzib, 7th–6th century BCE, pottery Collection of Israel Antiquities Authority, Photo © The Israel Museum, by Ardon Bar Hama
  15. 15. 4. Various symbols (mainly animals and plants) which the prophet drew upon metaphorically. These symbols were also prevalent in Ancient Near Eastern art of this period, as the discoveries prove. 11:6 The wolf shall dwell  with the lamb, the  leopard lie down with the  kid; The calf, the beast  of prey, and the fatlin  together, With a little boy  to herd them LEAPING LION CUB AND A RECUMBENT RAM FIGURE Persian period 6th -4th century BCE These figures were found in a shrine in Mizpe Hayammim.

  19. 19. And Then There Was Nano- The Smallest Bible in the World May 20, 2015-December 31, 2016 On the occasion of the Museum’s 50th anniversary, a new exhibition space in the Shrine of the Book is inaugurated with this display of a cutting-edge version of the Bible – a gilt nano chip the size of a sugar grain, on which the entire Bible is inscribed. Illustrating the power of nanotechnology, this high-tech miracle was created in the laboratories of Haifa’s Technion Institute by means of a technique recalling stone engraving. The text engraved on the chip needs to be magnified 10,000 times in order to be legible. The exhibition takes the Book of Books on a journey from antiquity to the present – from the 2,000-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls to the 21st-century Nano Bible.
