New technology reads ancient scroll that cannot be unrolled!
Modern technology is changing the way that we view our world, in many respects: for the good, and sometimes the bad, unfortunately. However, it has proven to be of great interest, when an ancient scroll was found near where the Dead Sea Scrolls, were unearthed, in 1947.
The newly discovered scroll was burnt severely, to the point, that it could not be unrolled; yet modern science was able to read its contents and its discovery is one of great appeal.
Live Science shared their findings in a video:
“Using the 3-D shape generated by segmentation, our software makes another pass through the scroll, this time looking for very bright pixels,” the researchers stated. “Bright pixels indicate regions of dense material – in this case, inks made with iron or lead.”
It was soon determined that the scroll contains portions of the Book of Leviticus, that is exact to what we read today, which of course, took scientists by surprise.
“This technology that is described is just absolutely astonishing,” Dr. Ron Allen, an Old Testament scholar, from Dallas Theological Seminary declared. “To be able to read something that can’t be unrolled … is just outstanding. God, who inspired the Bible, has seen fit to have the copying of the Bible be done with remarkable accuracy,” concluded, Allen.
Psalm 105:19 (KJV)
19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him.
Proverbs 30:5 (KJV)
5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
Isaiah 40:8 (KJV)
8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
Matthew 24:35 (KJV)
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
1 Peter 1:25 (KJV)
25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
Glory be to God! This discovery is truly of great interest. I pray that those that played a part in its finding—if they are not yet Christians—will decide to turn to God. His Word IS truth, no matter who may declare otherwise.
