The Dead Sea Scrolls and the New Testament

On Tuesday, December 4 Dr. Peter Flint of the Dead Sea Scrolls Institute at Trinity Western University will present his lecture “The Dead Sea Scrolls and the New Testament.” This long-awaited lecture will be held at Fraser Hall 4 on the campus of Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington. The event will begin at 7:00 PM and admission is free.

In this stunning presentation illustrated with PowerPoint pictures, Dr. Flint will introduce the Dead Sea Scrolls, focusing on the biblical scrolls found at Qumran, and discuss the implication of these ancient manuscripts for the Bible. Some of the vital issues raised by the Scrolls are the antiquity, the accuracy, and the canon of the Bible in light of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The lecture will also reveal several new readings from the Dead Sea Scrolls. These readings are so powerful and so important that they are being included in recent English translations of the Bible.

As Dr. Flint will note in his lecture, there have been major advancements in the study of the Dead Sea Scrolls in the past few years. At Logos we’re doing our part to increase the distribution and in-depth study of the scrolls through the upcoming Qumran Biblical Dead Sea Scrolls Database.

    It’s a long way from Tampa, FL to Bellingham, Washington!
    How can we get a tape of this event? Maybe even a transcript and the powerpoint notes (presentation)?

    Yes, please keep with recent traditions and tape this. This would be great to record with the PowerPoint. Camtasia Studio can do that sort of thing, so you might consider that.

      Is this the Richard Estes I used to know years ago? The WTBTS collector?
      Just wondering. John
