There are those who are questioning the authenticity of the Dead Sea Scrolls because of fake fragments of these scrolls that have been revealed

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Randy, your knowledge and your background as an archeologist digging in the caves down there at Qumran would you say that the original Dead Sea Scrolls which are there protected in the shrine of the book, are they authentic?

RP: Yeah, I’ve seen these. I was one of the privileged few to be taken into the vault and shown the original scrolls from Isaiah a to Temple scroll to the Genesis, all of the original scrolls found in cave 1. I don’t think there’s any doubt of the authenticity of them. If they were found in the caves they say they were they’re so inaccessible and they were blocked; it would just be impossible for someone to carry out this kind of a massive forgery of things. So I would say those we don’t have as much question about.

In the museums of the world we know every museum has fakes and forgeries and some of these are ancient forgeries. They weren’t done in modern times they were done back in even Biblical times but they are forgeries for one reason or another. Its only these newer fragments that have come on the scene that tend to have just in a few cases differences from some of these older scrolls and that’s why a case is being made mainly because and let me be frank about it, they’ve been sold to Christian institutions. And I talked to William Kando who’s now the one in the Kando family who carries the possession of the scrolls for it. He says we’re Syrian Orthodox we only want to sell to Christian institutions that will magnify Jesus; that’s what he told me personally. So that’s why so many Christian institutions have been acquiring these. Well you know that is always subject to suspicion because people doubt anything Christians do, doubt their scholarship, doubt their ability to handle anything. So, I think a lot of the attacks have been made because of who now owns these scrolls.

JD: Dr. Randall Price and his opinion on the authenticity of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Dr. Price who has an archeological dig going on now at Qumran near the Dead Sea in Israel which is very near to the caves where a Bedouin boy found the Dead Sea scrolls. Dr. Price believes in the authenticity of these Dead Sea scrolls because of his research in the area and the scrolls themselves which he has examined.

These scrolls are the foundation for our Bibles today coming into this world through the Jewish people, Romans 3:2. These scrolls are key to our understanding of the prophetic passages for the end times, the days in which we are living.

There is a report that the Trump peace plan for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will include Jerusalem as the capital city for both the Jewish and Palestinian states

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Word coming out of Israel from some of my sources Israel is fearing the United States peace plan would include Jerusalem as the capital for a Palestinian state but also the same as a capital for Israel as well. What do we know?

DD: Well Jimmy Prime Minister Netanyahu made a surprise visit to Oman on Friday and then met with the Sultan there and others that was part of the negotiations we’re hearing about this peace treaty. President Trump stated earlier in the week that some of the things that are being developed will be not so pleasant for the Israeli’s. He said, they owe me especially moving the embassy to Jerusalem a big plus for Israel. But he said we expect things in return meaning that some of what they’re going to demand is not going to be well received in Israel and of course having any sort of a Palestinian state with any sort of a capital in any part of Jerusalem is a very problematic proposition for the Israeli’s.

Netanyahu stated again this week that any state there would have to be totally de-militarized. Israel would remain the overall security chief and that they could have every other function of a state except a military. Well the Palestinians I don’t think will ever go along with that. And again I’ve stated this to you many times I don’t think this peace plan being developed will go anywhere. There’s certainly no signs on the ground that it’s going to the PA remains extremely weak. We still have all this violence in Gaza. I just don’t see it taking off but the President seems determined to at least present the plan and we’ll find out exactly what’s in it.

JD: David Dolan with details on the Trump Middle East peace plan which includes Jerusalem as the capital city for the Jewish state and a Palestinian state.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

This on going Israeli-Palestinian conflict is now focused on the city of Jerusalem. Both the Jews and the Palestinians claimed Jerusalem as the capital for their state. Since there has never been a Palestinian state it doesn’t seem right that the Palestinians claim Jerusalem as its capital for their non-state.

In the Bible God gave the Jews Jerusalem as their political, spiritual and eternal capital, that’s recorded in II Samuel chapters 5, 6, 7. The Jews say that it is their undivided capital which brings about the conflict. Jesus said that he had chosen Jerusalem, Psalm 132:13 & 14 to dwell among his people the Jewish people forever; that’s the answer to this conflict.
