The Buried Dead Sea Scrolls Of The Wadi Qumran | Unearthed | Odyssey

Unearthed between 1947 and 1956 in eleven caves in and around the Wadi Qumran. The texts are of great religious and historical significance, as they are practically the only known surviving Biblical documents written before AD 100. The Dead Sea scrolls comprise roughly 825-872 documents, including texts from the Hebrew Bible. We'll explore the Qumran area where the scrolls were discovered. We'll be joined by Dead Sea Scroll editors, archaeologists and historians. The Scrolls will come to life as we ask some tough questions. Was John the Baptist an Essene as some claim? Did he belong to this secret closed sect of Judaism? Recent excavations shed new light on this controversial topic.
