Bible and archaeology news
For the next six months, visitors to New York’s Times Square will be able to view a rare collection of 20 Dead Sea Scrolls, together with hundreds of other Biblical-era artifacts from Israel. The Discovery Times Square exhibition “Dead Sea Scrolls: Life and Faith in Biblical Times” includes fragments from the War Scroll and the books of Genesis, Psalms, Exodus and Isaiah, along with four scrolls that are being displayed to the public for the first time. The exhibit, which is being called the largest collection of Biblical artifacts ever displayed outside Israel, also features numerous objects from ancient Jerusalem, including a gold and pearl earring recently excavated from the City of David, and a 3-ton stone from Jerusalem’s Western Wall, originally built as part of the retaining wall that supported Herod’s Temple Mount.
