Charles Savelle (Bible X) tells about his enjoyable afternoon at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary to visit the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Bible Exhibit (Fort Worth). He describes the entire visit, step by step, including a list of “the scroll fragments and other manuscripts and Bibles” including a list of the Biblical verses included in the scroll fragments. A Qumran simulated dig is part of the exhibit. Charles includes a a hi-res photo of himself standing in a nice replica of a mikvah (ritual bath) at Qumran. Read the complete report here. The exhibit runs through January 13, 2013.
I enjoyed lunch with Charles one day at the recent ETS annual meeting. I find his Bible X blog helpful.
Luke Chandler reports here that a different Dead Sea Scrolls Exhibit is now open at the Cincinnati Museum Center. This exhibit includes about “600 biblically-related artifacts on loan from the Israel[i] Antiquities Authority.” Read more here. This exhibit which runs through April, 2013, has already been in New York and Philadelphia. Check our link to the New York exhibition here. The 39 page guide to the exhibit by Gordon Franz is still available.
Luke also comments on a recent comment by Dr. William Dever regarding the lack of evidence for the “Low Chronology” here.
It was only yesterday that I came caught up with a post by Seth Rodriquez (Wild Olive Shoot) written the day after the U.S. presidential election. He has some important words for those who may have been disappointed in the outcome of the election. See here.
