Why the Dead Sea Scrolls matter

When a Bedouin shepherd discovered the Dead Sea Scrolls in Israel in the 1940s, few people immediately understood their importance. After taking the scrolls back to his camp, this shepherd left one of them on the ground to be torn apart by children, while one person reportedly used another scroll fragment to wipe a baby's bottom.

As the scrolls made their way to antiquities dealers and scholars, some refused to accept their antiquity. In 1948, however, biblical archaeologist W.F. Albright of Johns Hopkins University examined some photographs of the scrolls. Dating them quickly to the second century B.C., Albright dubbed these scrolls "the greatest manuscript discovery of modern times." Now, more than half a century after the discovery of these scrolls, few would debate Albright's claim. But what makes these scrolls the most important find of the 20th century?

The NAS and translations of the last half of the 20th century, and later, took a close look at the Dead Sea scrolls which weren't available to anyone before that time. Also more secular literature of the time that the Bible was written has been found which has helped in understanding the languages of the time, and thus do a better job translating.

I would suggest that you also read, The Preservation of Scripture and The Biblical Position on The KJV Controversy for a better understanding how Biblical interpretation was done. Oh, the The Roman Catholic Bible is not so bad in itself, but what has been added to it--the heretical Catholic commentary and The Apocrypha. The latter is not included in modern Protestant Bibles.

The KJV (TR) is of Roman Catholic origin.
The NAS (W-H) is of Roman Catholic origin.

Which is better for an Evangelical Protestant to memorize?

I would suggest that you read, The Biblical Position on The KJV Controversy by John MacArthur. I would suppose you would know that even the RV didn't use Westcott and Hort, men who no doubt were much more Christian than Satan's right hand man, Erasmus, Westcott & Hort: Victims of KJV-Only Smear Campaign.

Well of course the scrolls better relate to the KJV Jim.

Everbody knows that the modern versions eg NASB/NIV were only written in the 19th century by the Anglican Liberals Westcott and Hort. Surely you already know this.

Besides that, it is an interesting article, and look over, The Dead Sea Scrolls.
