How the Dead Sea Scrolls Vindicate the Reliability of the Bible
The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947 was a revolutionary discovery in the area of biblical studies. When they were first discovered there was a lot of questions and suspicion about the content of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Now, 72 years later research has helped us discover the community behind these Scrolls and what they believed. The Dead Sea Scrolls made a huge contribution towards the area of Old Testament studies as it has vindicated and verified the textual transmission of the Old Testament text. It has also shed light on the New Testament as well including the view of the Messiah. This is important in light of outreach to our Muslim friends who argue that the Bible has been corrupted. The Dead Sea Scrolls refute these notions.
