Messages from the Dead Sea Scrolls: a Judeo-Christian Perspective
The Israel Engagement Committee is partnering with Under One Tent: Contra Costa Jewish Book and Arts Festival to host this fascinating program, which will be led by well-known teacher and archeologist Dr. Jehon Grist, Executive Director of Lehrhaus Judaica.
Ever since their discovery beginning in 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls have captured the imagination and curiosity of Jews and Christians. Our session will cover that discovery as well as Qumran, the site where many of the scrolls were written. The heart of the presentation will be studying images of the scrolls and what they tell us about early Judaism and Christianity. We will also cover recent discoveries that add both mystery as well as controversy to the meaning of the Scrolls for us today.
Open to the community. Fee: $10 early bird registration; $15 at the door. Students free. Please RSVP by November 26th firstname.lastname@example.org or 925.934.9446
