From scrolls to codices to the books we know today, the Bible has taken different shapes and has been written with different techniques.

The Dead Sea Scrolls are the oldest biblical texts ever found. The discovery gave us important clues about the everyday lives of the people who recorded these stories more than 2,000 years ago.

Today, the search for more treasures continues. Are there additional manuscripts that might shed more light on the earliest versions of the Bible’s stories?

  1. Being a beautiful liberal belonging to the left of the left it doesn't mean I ignore the fundamental core of my faith as a Christian, yes I disagree with so many teachings & scholars about many statements but God, Christ, and The Holy Spirit are my eternity whom I worship out of love & need always, we cannot have any kind of life without being connected to God himself † 💛

  2. I like the correlation between the way the codexes and scrolls were handmade for each copy until the printing press, and the use of stop motion animation, crafting each and every picture and stitching them together to tell a story. Very creative! Id love to be a biblical archaeologist one day.

  3. فَوَيْلٌ لِّلَّذِينَ يَكْتُبُونَ الْكِتَابَ بِأَيْدِيهِمْ ثُمَّ يَقُولُونَ هَٰذَا مِنْ عِندِ اللَّهِ لِيَشْتَرُوا بِهِ ثَمَنًا قَلِيلًا ۖ فَوَيْلٌ لَّهُم مِّمَّا كَتَبَتْ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَوَيْلٌ لَّهُم مِّمَّا يَكْسِبُونَ (79)

    سورة البقرة – القرءان الكريم

  4. How does any of this make sense? The world is said to have been formed billions of years ago. The oldest human DNA is said to be over 2 million years old. Adam and Eve are said to have been created by God perhaps 230, 000 years ago to closest calculations. If the earliest humans came out of East and Southern Africa over 2 million years ago, the Old Testament and Genesis would not add up?

  5. But we Christians believe that all the Bible has been found now. Bible is complete, full of power and it didn't change and it is not changed and it'll never be change. Because it is full of truth. God's word is best book to read and to follow

  6. During medieval times, learning was restricted to the clergy and the nobility. Common people weren't allowed to possess the Bible and the Holy book was read out in church only in Latin. Translation of it, in the language of the commoner was a crime punishable by death. The practice carried on until the 1500s when reformist Martin Luther changed the perception of the church. Now imagine, for almost 500 years the number of people who perished without knowing the word of God.

  7. I want to know who picked the 66 books that went into the bible….
    And why they did the 66 books and not 67 cause there's a lot of gospels out there that should be in the bible that aren't
