The Dead Sea Scrolls were first discovered in 1946 and consist of 981 different texts. The scrolls were found in a series of caves located about 1 mile from the Dead Sea and date from up to 200 years before Christ. There are 225 copies of parts of the Hebrew Scriptures representing every Old Testament text except the book of Esther.
In this video, Kerby Anderson discusses the significance of the discovery of the scrolls for our faith today.
