The Dead Sea Scrolls represent the most important find of the 20th century for understanding the history of the Middle East in the centuries surrounding the birth of Christ. The scrolls provide an intimate link to the culture and background of Israel and Palestine with huge implications for understanding the political situation of the first century and gaining a picture of the relationship between Judaism and early Christianity. Reading the scrolls themselves demonstrates important cultural, theological, and conceptual connections between the Judaism and the New Testament authors.
