If you are around the Fort Worth area, make sure you head out to see the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Bible, which is on display through January 13, 2013.
Transport back in time to the Holy Land. Take a look at displays containing 16 fragments of the 2,000-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls, first discovered in 1947 in Israel. The scrolls include the oldest-known copies of every book of the Hebrew Bible except Esther, as well as extra-biblical texts ranging from prayers to commentaries to hymns. The exhibit includes biblical passages from Exodus, the Psalms and Daniel as well as excavation tools from the original site, a portion of a Gutenberg Bible and a 1511 King James Bible.
Throughout the tour, you will enjoy interactive kiosks and get your hands dirty in a simulated archaeological dig outside the exhibit. (Make sure you arrive before dark, if you wish to participate.)
My family enjoyed the exhibit. My children were interested in the display, and loved the archaeological dig outside. There are no cameras or video allowed inside, but nonetheless, the experience will remain in your memory.
The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Bible are currently located in the Southwestern Seminary (Performing Arts Center) in Fort Worth.
