Dead Sea Scrolls Posted Online

Want to read the biblical book of Isaiah, the Temple Scroll, and other 2,000-year-old Dead Sea scrolls? Soon, there may be an app for that. It’s been several decades since the Dead Sea scrolls were found in desert caves, but on Monday, the artifacts were posted online. The project, run by Google in part with Israel’s national museum, is an effort to make the manuscripts accessible to anyone with a computer. Users can zoom in and out to read specific passages that contain information on the origin of the Hebrew Bible and Christianity.
