Christian Fundamentalism and the Dead Sea Scrolls

Postby Brian Jordan » Thu Aug 16, 2007 11:54 am

The Dead Sea Scrolls isn't a subject I know much about - just tales of a cabal, censorship and so forth. Since the censorship has long been blown away (for those who can read them, at any rate) it looks as though the spin merchants have taken over - including fundamentalists and literalists. It sound much like the creationist story as usual - the same people taking in each others' washing, u/n/s/e/e/n/ unheard of universities and dubious degrees. I'm sure Roger will find it all too familiar.

The author has a go at Dr. Joe Zias. Zias is a respected member of the
ANE-2 mailing list and is an archaeologist. He disagrees strongly with
Tabor; the version written by the author and that available in the ANE-2
archives differ. I know which one I trust.

Aside from this, the gist of the article is reasonably accurate.
