NO OF PAGES: 350 SUB CAT I: Dead Sea Scrolls SUB CAT II: SUB CAT III: DESCRIPTION: Almost everyone has heard by now of the ancient Hebrew writings that have been found during recent years in caves near the Dead Sea. Almost everyone has been moved by the assertion of scholars that they come from the very community in which John the Baptist taught and Jesus learned. And almost everyone has been intrigued by the widespread claim that they reveal to us a long lost forerunner of Christianity - and perhaps even an anticipation of Jesus Himself. Thus far, however, very few people have had a chance to read the documents themselves, for no complete translation of them has yet appeared in a form accessible to the layman. The book supplies that need. It offers renderings f all the intelligibly preserved documents retrieved from the Dead Sea caves, together with a related text (the so-called "Zadokite fragment"") which was discovered, nearly fifty years ago, in an old synagogue at Cairo. Moreover it does not gear these renderings to any particular theory, but allows the documents to raise their own voice and give their own testimony amid the current controversy about them.NOTES: Donated by Gary and Angie Springer.
