Beginning on Sunday, April 10th and continuing for three Sundays (April 10, 17, & 24) Travis Williams will be conducting one of his periodic presentations during the Sunday School time in the Contemporary Worship Center. Travis has described his intentions for this series as follows:
The Dead Sea Scrolls have been described as the most important archaeological find of the 20th century. Since their discovery in 1947, this collection of over 900 manuscripts (written between the 3rd century BC and the 1st century AD) has been the subject of concentrated study and intense debate. After years of excavation, reassembly, and translation, the Dead Sea Scrolls have profoundly shaped the modern understanding of ancient Judaism and early Christianity. In this three-part series, we will explore the story behind the scrolls’ discovery, the group responsible for their composition/preservation, and the significance of the scrolls for interpreting the Bible.
