Learn More About the Dead Sea Scrolls

In the most recent issue of the Smithsonian Magazine, Andrew Lawler writes an article, “Who Wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls?” Discovered in 1947 these 800 plus manuscripts have been made increasingly available to Jewish and Christian scholars collaborating and now more and more to the general populace. I have listed for your personal online exposure to these manuscripts sites that I have found interesting and helpful.
