Awesome discoveries: https://www.usnews.com/news/news/articl ... ea-scrolls

What would be really cool - but I doubt exists - would be an unknown writing by the one of the main Apostles - and not just some supposed / debunked "Lost Book" that conservative scholars all know is meaningless and fake. And if such a thing existed, it would have to be in a cave somewhere.

Are you sure this is not a fake find? Nowadays, you can fake anything in order to manipulate the consciousness of people. I would be glad if the authenticity of the find was confirmed. I think all believers are waiting for this.

The find is real, the fragments found are real. There’s nothing remarkable about the fragments other than their age and historical importance.

Here is an excellent page of links to all kinds of information related to the Dead Sea Scrolls, from Biblical Archaeology Society - which publishes Biblical Archaeology Review:

https://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/cat ... a-scrolls/

The Dead Sea Scrolls, discovered in caves near the Dead Sea in Israel, date from the mid-third century B.C. until the mid-first century. They are hugely important collection of writings and fragment that give important understandings per their time period of overlap, providing insights into the beliefs and traditions of ancient Judaism and into the early Christian era.

From Wikipedia: "Many thousands of written fragments have been discovered in the Dead Sea area. They represent the remnants of larger manuscripts damaged by natural causes or through human interference, with the vast majority holding only small scraps of text. However, a small number of well-preserved, almost intact manuscripts have survived – fewer than a dozen among those from the Qumran Caves. Researchers have assembled a collection of 981 different manuscripts – discovered in 1946/47 and in 1956 – from 11 caves."
