The Dead Sea Scrolls: The Light They Shed on Judaism and Christianity with Dr. John Collins

December 13, 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Monday, repeating until December 13, 2021

The Dead Sea Scrolls

The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls is widely regarded as the most important contribution of archeology to Biblical Studies in the twentieth century. The first lecture will ask, what are the Dead Sea Scrolls, who collected them? Are they the product of a marginal sect or representative of Judaism in the time of Jesus. The second lecture will consider some texts found in the Scrolls that are of special interest for Christianity, including one that speaks of a figure who is called Son of God.

The two sessions will occur on December 6 and 13.
