Dead Sea Scrolls experts offer free public seminar

Langley, B.C.—Being granted the opportunity to edit ancient manuscripts is a privilege most of us will never know, let alone understand. There are only 70 Dead Sea Scrolls editors worldwide and only three of them live in Canada. Remarkable, though, two of those editors live in the Abbotsford, right under our noses, and both are willing to share their expertise with those around them.

On Monday, November 3rd, Trinity Western University's top Scrolls experts will be giving a free lecture for the community. Dr. Peter Flint will lecture on, “The Scrolls, the End Times and the Book of Revelations,” and Dr. Martin G. Abegg's lecture is entitled “Finding Elvis: Our Expectations of the Dead Sea Scrolls.” The public is warmly invited to learn more about biblical history and why this archeological find has caused such mystery, intrigue and scandal over the past several decades.
