There is no reason to suggest that the New Testament authors knew any of the sectarian works discovered among the Dead Sea Scrolls.Further, it is quite possible that the two groups never interacted with each other.Perhaps the most renowned of these is Isaiah's vision of universal peace at the End of Days: "And they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks: Nation shall not take up sword against nation; they shall never again know war" (2:4).As you use the translator tool in the scroll viewer, we would like to call your attention to the complexities of translating the words of the Prophet Isaiah of around 2,800 years ago, as reflected in the different Hebrew variants and subsequent English translations. As a result, the more one knows about Judaism during the time of Christian origins, the stronger basis we have for understanding the New Testament. The Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in the caves by Qumran, a site in the Judean Wilderness on the west side of the Dead Sea. Vander Kam explores similarities between the Dead Sea Scrolls and the New Testament in the March/April 2015 issue of BAR. Vander Kam was a member of the committee that prepared the scrolls for publication. Vander Kam explains, “The earliest followers of Jesus and the literature they produced were thoroughly Jewish in nature.The palaeographic datings had been assessed to be BCE but the archaeological evidence appeared to put those behind the eight ball. revised the stages of progression of the types of scripts, assigning to each typology its own date range, so that the scrolls from Cave 1 ended at the time of the Jewish Revolt in the mid/late 60s CE.Other types of script had since been discovered further south at Wadi Murabba’at.
Then the palaeographic datings were secondarily adjusted to be in alignment. The archaeological correction of the scroll deposits to the First Revolt was the basis for fixing the palaeographic dates of the latest Qumran cave texts to the first century CE, and the dates of the biblical texts postdating the Qumran caves’ latest to later than 70 CE.The museum's mission here is to provide you the background information required to reach your own objective perspective when reading this English translation of the biblical text. In the 1990s Doudna raised the question of whether the Qumran cave scrolls had been deposited as late as the first century CE.Unlike most of the biblical scrolls from Qumran, it exhibits a very full orthography (spelling), revealing how Hebrew was pronounced in the Second Temple Period.Around twenty additional copies of the Book of Isaiah were also found at Qumran (one more copy was discovered further south at Wadi Muraba'at), as well as six pesharim (commentaries) based on the book; Isaiah is also frequently quoted in other scrolls (a literary and religious phenomenon also present in New Testament writings).
