Decades after their discovery, scholars still debate the significance of these ancient manuscripts--and search for more.
Many hailed it as the most important manuscript discovery of all time. The Dead Sea Scrolls promised to shed light on the Christianity's earliest days, and the devout hoped they would reveal secrets about the origin of their faith, or provide evidence that Jesus existed. After decades of secrecy and controversy, these remarkable documents are finally available to a new generation of scholars, whose findings are revitalizing the study of Christianity's earliest days.
From the chambers where experts analyze the scrolls to the caves of Qumran, where an archeologist searches for unfound manuscripts, INVESTIGATING HISTORY® examines every facet of the fascinating story surrounding these documents. Hear from people like Robert Eisenman, the author of James, Brother of Jesus, and see how scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory are helping write a new chapter in the history of the DEAD SEA SCROLLS.
