Qumran - The Story Of The Dead Sea Scrolls

12 years ago
The Shrine of the Book, at the Israel Museum, hosts one of the most valued treasures of the Jewish People: the Dead Sea Scrolls.  These texts, the most ancient Hebrew scripts ever found, include books of the Bible and writings that shed light on Jewish life back to the times of the destruction of the Second Temple and the Great Jewish Revolt against the Romans.  Two thousand years after they were written by members of the sect of the Essenes, the Dead Sea Scrolls were found here in Qumran, located in the Judean Desert, north of the Dead Sea.  Infolive.tv visited Qumran and brings you the story.12/16/08
