The Dead Sea Scrolls in Raleigh

"The Dead Sea Scrolls is an exhibition that tells a story that is beyond words, beyond time and beyond our imaginations. Experience the most remarkable archaeological discovery of the 20th century – the oldest surviving manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible, known to Christians as the Old Testament."

We saw this exhibit in Raleigh yesterday, and it's well worth a drive. A superb, multi-media exhibition that conveys a great feel for the scrolls and a sense of their place in history. A hint: they suggest an hour and a half for the exhibit. That's not unrealistic. It takes time and concentration to absorb this, and you don't want to rush.
