Who wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls and why?
How are they important to our understanding of the Bible?

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.

Why do people think that the Bible was written by God?Does faith require that you deceive yourself into thinking that the gospel writers are beyond reproach?
