Great article, thanks. For those wanting to read more background on the discovery of the Scrolls and how they were acquired by different museums and the Israeli government, RK Harrison's book The Dead Sea Scrolls would be a good read.

Thankfully, I had the chance to visit Qumran and the Dead Sea, so reading it made me feel like I was part of the action. I highly recommend a trip to Israel to have a better 'feel' of the events described in the Scriptures and to walk where our Lord and Saviour and his disciples walked and be where God's Shekinah glory resided in visible form. Blessings!
