The Dead Sea Scrolls

The Copper Scroll

“Forty two talents lie under the stairs in the salt pit … Sixty five bars of gold lie on the third terrace in the cave of the old Washers House … Seventy talents of silver are enclosed in wooden vessels that are in the cistern of a burial chamber in Matia’s courtyard. Fifteen cubits from the front of the eastern gates, lies a cistern. The ten talents lie in the canal of the cistern … Six silver bars are located at the sharp edge of the rock which is under the eastern wall in the cistern. The cistern’s entrance is under the large paving stone threshold. Dig down four cubits in the northern corner of the pool that is east of Kohlit. There will be twenty two talents of silver coins.” – Translated from the Copper Scroll.
While most of the Dead Sea Scrolls were found by Bedouins, the Copper Scroll, which is now on display at the Jordan Museum in Amman, was discovered by a Jordanian archaeologist. It was found on March 14, 1952 at the back of Cave 3 at Qumran. It was the last of 15 scrolls discovered in the cave and is thus referred to as 3Q15. While the other scrolls were written on parchment or papyrus, this scroll was written on copper. And rather than being placed in clay jars, it was found on a hidden man-made shelf in the back of the cave. Scholars believe it dates to the First Jewish Revolt against Rome in the first century C.E. (c. 66–70 C.E.) and place it right before the Romans destroyed the Jerusalem Temple in 70 C.E. The Copper Scroll is a VERBAL TREASURE MAP that leads to OVER 168 TONS of treasure that many researchers believe dates back to King Solomon’s Temple. As fascinating as that may be, the Copper Scroll also describes locations such as the POOL OF BETHESDA, thus corroborating the Bible.
The Copper Scroll is unique in all of antiquity. It represents a growing body of archaeological evidence that leads us to the TRUTH of the Scriptures and their focal point… Yeshua Jesus.✝️

The Isaiah Scroll


Your country lies in ruins, and your towns are burned. Foreigners plunder your fields before your eyes and destroy everything they see. – Isaiah 1:7

The Isaiah manuscript is one of the seven scrolls discovered in Qumran in 1947. It is the largest and best preserved scroll among the Dead Sea Scrolls library, and represents the only biblical book that has survived in its entirety. The fifty-four columns contain all sixty-six chapters, without a marked division between what modern scholarship regards as First and Second Isaiah. The scroll is one of the oldest Dead Sea Scrolls – it dates from about 100 BC and is older by about one thousand years than the oldest biblical manuscripts (such as the Aleppo Codex) known prior to the Qumran finds. The text, which is written clearly enough to be understood immediately by readers of modern Hebrew, substantiates to a remarkable degree the wording and orthography of medieval manuscripts.
