+JMJ+ Welcome to our continuing Catholic Book of the Month series, this month featuring Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls, by Dr. John Bergsma. I’ve only had a chance to glance at the book, but I have watched some of his video interviews. I found these while doing some research for a writing project that began as a very short story idea, but has grown much larger. (More about that as time goes on.) There will be notes and links at the end of this post.
Nine-video series playlist, Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls, by Dr. John Bergsma.
The greatest archeological discovery of the 20th century gave the world the Dead Sea Scrolls. As the oldest sacred documents of Judaism, the scrolls have many surprising connections to early Christianity.
Biblical scholar Dr. John Bergsma and Franciscan University of Steubenville president Father Dave Pivonka, TOR, discuss the history and mysteries of the scrolls, what they reveal about Jesus Christ, the sacraments, and the early Church, and why they matter to believers and non-believers today.
From the video series description.
Thank you for visiting and reading. I hope you’ll join me again. Until next time, whoever and wherever you are, stay safe and well, virtuous and holy during this joyous Easter season, and become who you were meant to be: a saint! May the Lord bless and keep you and yours, and may His peace be always with you. +JMJ+
