Bijbelmuseum gets fake Dead sea scrolls away


Bijbelmuseum haalt valse Dode Zeerollen weg

Below is an excerpt from the ‘fake’ Dead Zeerol.

The Bijbelmuseum in Washington has five fragments derived would be from the Dead sea scrolls removed. The museum believes that the roles are false.

The museum is based on research that was fought in Germany, and which would have to prove that the artifacts are not as old as are as claimed.

“While we hoped that the test a different result would ensue, it is also an opportunity for the public to make clear how important it is to the authenticity of the rare passages to verify,” says museum curator Jeffrey Kloha. He stressed ‘transparent’ to want to be.

The Dead sea scrolls are more than two thousand years old, and are considered as one of the most important written sources about the ancient jewish culture. It comes in a total of around 900 documents, which were found around the 1950s on the West Bank to the Dead Sea. The discovery is one of the most important archaeological finds ever.

The scrolls date from the period from approximately 250 Bc to 50 ad. Likely, they are around 68 after Christ hidden in the caves.

The five fragments which, it is suspected that they are false, since last year in the Bijbelmuseum of Washington. But the public was already informed that the authenticity is still not confirmed.

In the last few years are often the parts of the reel, real or fake, offered for sale. Experts are worried about the commercial exploitation of the artifacts.
