SPRING 2019 SEMESTER
The Dead Sea Scrolls: Meaning and Mystery
The momentous discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls opened a window into the tenets and beliefs of early Judaism at the time they were developing. Who were the authors/transcribers of these manuscripts? Why did they choose to reside in the remote desert? What does the text tell us about the Bible and beliefs about the Jerusalem Temple, evil, the calendar, the end of time and the Messiah? Viewing Judaism through the lens of the Dead Sea Scrolls, one of the few primary sources from the Second Temple era, will deepen our understanding of Judaism today.
