Dead Sea Scrolls

We had a wonderful opportunity in March to go with our good friends, the Larsons, to see the Dead Sea Scrolls.  It was a great night.  We had dinner at an Italian Restaurant across the street and then over to see The Dead Sea Scrolls.

The exhibits before the Dead Sea Scrolls were a little redundant.  It will show my utter lack of sophistication, but it was a lot of pots.  A lot of pots.  A few weapons.  Seeing the rocks used in sling shots was a little fascinating.

The actual Dead Sea Scrolls are fragmented but fascinating.  There were scriptures but also legal contracts and every day life.  I wish that I had read more about them so that I could have appreciated more of what I was seeing.
