Oldest Biblical Text Since Dead Sea Scrolls Discovered in Israel

Source: www.rt.com

Israeli scientists discovered a 1,500-year-old charred scroll and “digitally unwrapped” it to find it contained Biblical text from the Old Testament, namely Leviticus.

Quote from RT.com:

Although it looked little more than a burnt piece of wood, the object Israeli researchers uncovered at Ein Gedi turned out to house one of the most precious texts of the Old Testament: the first eight verses of the Book of Leviticus.

Israeli scientists originally discovered the scroll in the 1970s in the region of Ein Gedi, which lies on the shores of the Dead Sea. The town used to house a Jewish community during the Byzantine period. Among the notable features of the village were its mosaics, synagogue and the Holy Ark that contained pieces of the Torah, the Old Testament.

However, the town mysteriously burned to the ground and none of the inhabitants ever returned to collect their belongings.
