The Dead Sea Scrolls Part 1

Dr. Glen Fairen of the University of Alberta joins us teach us about the Dead Sea Scrolls. We talk about the origin of the scrolls and the controversy surrounding their discovery. We have a little fun discussing some of the myths about the content of the scrolls, and then we go into some detail about what they actually contain. Finally, we wrap up with some speculation about the community who collected and preserved these texts.

Dr. Fairen’s book: As Below, So Above: Apocalypticism, Gnosticism and the Scribes of Qumran and Nag Hammadi
