Dead Sea Scrolls lecture series with Scrolls expert Dr. Peter Flint

Langley, B.C.—The Dead Sea Scrolls have enthralled scholars, theologians and the public since their discovery, yet it’s only been in the last few decades that the translated materials have become available to the masses.
This October the public will be given the unique opportunity to walk back in time with one of Trinity Western University’s own Dead Sea Scrolls scholars, Peter Flint, PhD. Flint, Co-Director of the Dead Sea Scrolls Institute and professor of Biblical Studies at TWU, will be giving a series of four Wednesday night lectures at Richmond Alliance Church.

As co-author of The Meaning of the Dead Sea Scrolls (best book in Biblical Studies for 2002 according to from the Biblical Archaeology Society in Washington, D.C.) and The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible (1999, containing the biblical scrolls) Flint spends much of his free time teaching and lecturing about the Dead Sea Scrolls all over North America and abroad, but this time he’ll be sharing his expertise with the local community.

“We are the first generation to have full access to this ancient material that had been lost for two thousand years,” says Flint. "For anyone who is interested in the Scriptures, the Dead Sea Scrolls are a goldmine of new information that will help us to better understand the Bible, its accuracy, how it came about, and it will even help with some of the difficult readings in the Bible.”
