Scrolls from Ketef Hinnom

'Just Stories?' #31

What's in the series?      Previous: The Isaiah Scroll      Next: Reliable Documents

In 1979 Gabriel Barkay was excavating  at Ketef Hinnom, just outside the Old City of Jerusalem. He discovered two tiny silver scrolls - the size of cigarette butts. They are the earliest copies that have ever been found of texts of parts of the Old Testament.

One text comes from the priestly blessing in Numbers ch. 6 - ‘The Lord bless you and keep you...’  Another comes from Deuetronomy ch. 7.  These are Old Testament texts dating back to the seventh century BC - five hundred years older than any of the Dead Sea Scrolls. They help to confirm how old the text of the Old Testament is.

With Dr. Chris Sinkinson, lecturer in Old Testament and Apologetics at Moorlands college.
