Google helps to digitize Dead Sea Scrolls for public

The scrolls were originally discovered in a group of caves Northeast of the Dead Sea and according to tradition it was on the eve of Jerusalem?s destruction by the Romans in 70 AD.The scrolls have been on display since 1966 at the Israel Museum but have been off limits to visitors because the papers have been called as delicate as the skin of an onion. ;The first seven scrolls are now provided online. It includes the Great Isaiah Scroll which is the largest and most ancient biblical manuscript in existence. The museum?s main website now contains a google link where visitors can browse through the scrolls online. AE---BN
