Truly ancient history comes to Texas

What did a bedouin shepherd and a cobbler who dealt in antiques have in common? That’s right—Dead Sea Scrolls. And a special exhibition on these precious objects opened on July 2 at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. It will run until January 11. 

Titled “Dead Sea Scrolls and the Bible: Ancient Artifacts, Timeless Treasures,” it features at least eight of the Seminary’s scroll fragments—the largest collection of these objects in the United States. Part of the exhibit will be a newly acquired scroll that’s being referred to as “paleo-Leviticus” because it was written in ancient Hebrew and, some scholars say, dates to the second century bc .
