Who wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls and why?
How are they important to our understanding of the Bible?
If I'm not mistaken, the dead sea scrolls are the oldest copy we have of the bible. The older the copy, the closer it is to the source material. It's important because, of the fragments found, some have different wording than modern renditions of the bible which could change certain aspects of the Christian religions. The only problem is that so little remains that it's difficult to pull much cohesion out of it. I was lucky enough to see the fragments on display at a museum and to say that they are small is an understatement. But it was a fascinating find for both the religious and historical scholars.
