Rose Publishing Dead Sea Scrolls - PowerPoint CD-ROM

The Dead Sea Scrolls discovery is one of the most important finds to confirm that the Bible was translated accurately . This ready-to-use PowerPoint presentation has more than 100 slides that tell the story of how the scrolls were discovered, and shows maps, a time.line, and photos of the caves and scrolls.

This fascinating PowerPoint presentation gives a great overview of the Dead Sea Scrolls and their importance. Written by archaeologist Randall Price, The Dead Sea Scrolls PowerPoint teaches how the scrolls were discovered and why this find matters for us today. Helps clear up misunderstandings. For example, some people believe (wrongly) that the Dead Sea Scrolls were the originals of the Bible.

Includes two full PowerPoint presentations:

  • Basic Version for lay people, ages high school through adult (180 slides)
  • Advanced Version for graduate and post-graduate scholarship (250 slides)

Contains many photographs of recent finds, illustrations and reconstructions of the Qumran community, time lines of historical events, and maps showing where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.

The Dead Sea Scrolls PPT examines the discovery of the oldest known copies of portions of the Old Testament. These ancient documents confirm the accuracy of modern Bible translations, but what were they doing hidden in caves in Qumran? Who were the people who hid them there?  What do these scrolls reveal about Jewish history, the Old and New Testaments and early Christianity? This PowerPoint presentation investigates amazing discovery. Includes a map of the region, a time line, and photos of caves and parchment scrolls.

The presentation covers:

  • What we know about the site
  • How the scrolls reveal the accuracy of Old Testament Bible translation over the centuries
  • What the scrolls reveal about Jewish history
  • What the scrolls reveal about early Christianity
  • What the scrolls reveal about the New Testament

This DVD contains a wealth of information into the background, history, context, content and significance of the scrolls. It is a very good 'tool' for educational applications. Well worth the money.
