The riddle of the Dead Sea scrolls by James R Mitchell( Visual )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls in 1947, most scholars have dated them at around 140 B.C. This program discusses Dr. Barbara Thiering's theory that the scrolls were actually written at the time of Christ and that he was born and raised at Qumran, where the scrolls were found. When studied in this context, the Dead Sea scrolls bring new insight and understanding not only to the New Testament but to the beginnings of Christianity itself. Also significant is Dr. Thiering's belief that there is a second layer of meaning in the Gospels, throwing new light on such mysteries as the Virgin birth, what really happened to Jesus when he was crucified and how He apparently rose from the dead
