Dead Sea Scroll Fragment
April 24, 2018

Does the Museum of the Bible hold modern forgeries of the Dead Sea Scrolls?

The Museum of Nature and Science in Denver is running an exhibition through September 3, 2018 that features fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls, plus more than 500 artifacts from the ancient Middle East. Organized by the Israel Antiquities Authority, the show premiered at Discovery Times Square in New York in 2011 and Denver is the last stop on the U.S. tour.
