BIBLE SCROLL FRAGMENTS AMONG DAZZLING ARTIFACTS FOUND IN DEAD SEA CAVE OF HORROR
By Amanda Borschel-Dan,
March 16, 2021

Amanda Borschel-Dan writes of 2000-year old biblical scroll fragments, Greek translations of the books of Zechariah and Nahum, that have been found in Judean Desert Caves. The finds are part of a concerted effort since 2017 to rescue such ancient artifacts, given the massive looting that has been going on ever since Bedouin shepherds discovered the Dead Sea scrolls some 70 years ago. The intent is to preempt artifact thieves rather than try to track artifacts that have been looted. The article contains impressive photos of some of the finds, including a skeleton of a young girl and scraps of fabric and sandals.
