At the Dead Sea in Israel archaeologist have found what may well be the greatest archaeological find in all of history

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Let me insert some good news here in your report if you will David. This last week a report of some Bible Scroll fragments being found near the Dead Sea area and the Dead Sea caves where we had the original Dead Sea Scrolls. Can you talk to us about this? This is great news possibly one of the great archeological finds of all time.

DD: Well Jimmy they started in 2017 to search hundreds of caves that were known to exist but were so hard to get to. They are very high up in gorges and sheer wall cliffs and all of this but the antiquities department launched a campaign to try and get to all of them and see what else might still be in there. Of course the Dead Sea Scrolls found at Qumran and some caves in the late 40s and early 50s but nothing really has been found since then. Well for the last three years they've been looking and indeed they found quite a few things including some scrolls that contain Scriptures from Zechariah and the prophet Nahum. They found other Jewish writings. They found a lot of coins and they even found an old woven basket they say is ten thousand years old, but it's definitely very old. And only the conditions of the desert could allow that to still be around after all these centuries. 

So very difficult meaning that thieves, we won't call them that but people that go out and try and find these things mostly Palestinians and then sell them and make quite a profit they haven't been able to get to most of these places. They're using drones, propelling equipment and high advanced things. They say there are about 600 caves that have been examined and there's more to come so this will continue and they will make another announcement of what they find. But just a reminder the Jews were there in ancient times, Jewish coins were found, Hebrew was found, and more of the Bible, the ancient prophets were found. So it is very exciting indeed.

JD: David Dolan will the details on the recent Biblical Scrolls found in the Dead Sea area of Israel.

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

David's report gives us some very good news in a time of mostly bad news. David's report also helps us to authenticate the authority of God's word, the Bible. The recent discovery at the Dead Sea included the scroll of the book of Zechariah which as you remember is prophetic in information both in the first coming and the second coming of Jesus Christ. Remember the last three chapters of Zechariah detail the Lord's return to the Mount of Olives.
