Dead Seas Scrolls

some_text

So I found out something I think is pretty interesting. With the help of Google the Dead Sea Scrolls have been digitized so you can see them on the internet. They go as far as an interactive scroll that you can zoom in on and read the english translation verse by verse. Accompanied on the site are videos that explain the different scrolls. With the age of the paper its amazing how well preserved it really is. I think its great that they have been able to put this online otherwise you would still have to go to the museum in Israel to get a peak. Anyway here is the link.
