isaiah scroll

Isaiahscroll_lg While doing some backgroung research for the sermon this Sunday, I stumbled across a very cool resource.  Because the Advent Season has begun, I’m focusing on Isaiah 9 ("Unto us a child is born…").  I’m wanting to show the congregation at Arrowsmith photos of the Great Isaiah Scroll that was found at Qumran.  The scroll, significantly, dates back to several generations before Jesus. 

Anyways, the Dorot Foundation has created a website in which you can scroll through the scroll.  Very very cool.  Go here.

And here’s the link where I discovered the link, Tyler Williams, professor of biblical studies at Taylor University College in Edmonton.
