New Dead Sea Scrolls Section and PDF to go with it
Another new section added to The Way to Yahuweh about 5 minutes ago – Dead Sea Scrolls
On this new page I shall to begin with be putting up PDF files containing transcriptions of the text as seen in the Dead Sea Scrolls, all of which will follow the following format:
Section 1 of the PDF: The text of the Book in question in Chapter and Verse order
Section 2 of the PDF: The text of the Book in question as a direct transcription as seen in the actual scroll from whence it came
Section 3 of the PDF: A comparison between either the Masoretic and the Dead Sea Scroll’s Hebrew text, or between the Greek Septuagint and Dead Sea Scroll’s Greek text, with differences between them highlighted
As it happens, I’ve already completed one PDF to go up – The Hebrew text of the Book of Micah as found in the Wadi Murabba’at Minor Prophets Scroll
It would be remiss if I didn’t mention that this is the only place on the internet where you can download and read a free transcription of some of the text seen in the Wadi Murabba’at Minor Prophet’s Scroll.
Despite being over 60 years since their discovery, the text from the Dead Sea Scrolls are not easy to come by, which is a dreadful shame.
I am seeking to rectify such a hazardous negligence 🙂
