Posted on 03/03/2014 1:25:38 PM PST by Renfield
An archaeologist says he discovered nine tiny scrolls with biblical text from the Qumran caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were unearthed, according to news reports.
The newfound scrolls, which date back to about 2,000 years ago, were hidden inside three leather tefillin cases, also known as phylacteries, traditionally carried by observant Jewish men, Italian news agency Ansa Mediterranean reported. These cases were first pulled out of the caves in the 1950s, but their contents apparently were not examined until now....

So what do the texts say?
Ok let’s save the mystery here what they will say...There was no divine Jesus, Jesus was merely a prophet and a disclaimer written in Aramaic in the scolls...”Do not believe the bible either Old or New testament, you are your own Gods and free to make God in your own image...oh and do not judge anyone who does anything immoral or dangerous”.
What is going on in my head? I read the title backwards and it came out “Dead Sea Scrolls Found In Caves In Texas”!
I think I have been watching too much of that new program on TV “America Unearthed”.
LOL...I really needed a good laugh today. Thanks!
"OMG, LOL! BRB"
That’s got to be one of the worst shows on television and that Scott Wolter guy is ridiculous.
they found RARE 2,000 year old folders with wcrolls in them and waited 64 years to open them?????? makes sense to me!!
My question is why did they wait since the 1950’s to look at this stuff?
According to the article, they haven't had experts read and translate them yet. But it says they were found inside tefilin (phylacteries). If so, they probably contain the same texts that Orthodox Jews have traditionally placed inside tefilin, per the rules in the Talmud: Exodus 13:1-16, Deuteronomy 6:4-9, and Deuteronomy 11:13-21.
If my guess is right, these are very old texts but tell us nothing we don't already know. If something else is on these parchments, and they are indeed from tefilin, then it shows that there were variant traditions in Second Temple times before the Talmud formalized the rules for tefilin. Which would be a significant finding in the history of Jewish religion, but probably still not that important to non-Jews.
If I had to guess, no one realized that these phylacteries still had parchment inside of them.
Phylacteries (tefilin) are leather boxes attached to leather straps which Orthodox Jews wear on their arm and forehead during morning prayers. Inside the boxes are small parchment scrolls with passages from the Bible written on them.

I love that show! I think it is fascinating.
Were these men professionals? If so, then these were the first known pro-phylacteries...protection indeed.
All kidding aside, I have long wondered how much history is just laying around in a drawer somewhere waiting to be revisited.
But he never closes out on a subject. It’s always an investigation pointing in one direction and then he hops a plane across the country to look at something else and tries to connect the two items. Or he’ll see something real, like a petroglyph, and read WAY too much into it without considering more realistic options.
The Egyptian treasure in the mysterious mythical Grand Canyon cave was a prime example. The helicopter chick says that the FAA prevents them from flying below the canyon rim and he answers back with “so the government won’t let you take me to where I think the cave is?!?” And he wants us to believe that a cave that was too difficult for him to find and reach could somehow store tons and tons of Egyptian gold that was taken there at a time when Africans didn’t even know that our continent existed, then stored in this one cave that’s impossible to get to. Oh, and it’s supposedly big enough for 50,000 people to fit in.
I’m glad that you find it fascinating and I’m not knocking you at all, but the few episodes I saw made me believe that this guy has some serious mental issues and delusions of grandeur.
By the way, has he ever found a single legitimate ancient artifact? Or is he like the bigfoot hunters that keep chasing and never finding?
He investigates interesting artifacts that others tell him about. Can he or anyone prove that the things he investigates are actually true? How can anyone prove that carving on a rock wall is 100 years or 1000 years old? No one can but that doesn’t keep them from being interesting to consider.

Nice one. I recently read the book myself.
So what do the texts say?

64 years is nothing - the Smithsonian has stuff in its basement not seen since Smithson put it there in the 19th Century.
OBVIOUSLY, there is a transatlantic link that the Egyptians knew about, which is how they secretly got their treasure to the inaccessible cave in the Grand Canyon.
We know this is true, because the Egyptians, via the hidden subway station under the Sphinx, is how they kept in contact with the other secret vimana base and city under the Himalayas.
We know the secret bases and cities exist, because there is no mention of them, thereby proving they are, indeed, secret!
IT’S A BLUEPRINT!
Nah, she’ll just fall thru it and babble about hallucinations.
Actually, you can determine relative age of stone carving if it is exposed to the elements. Differential weathering, growth of lickens, etc. Also, check out Gloria Farley’s book: “In Plain Sight”. It examines in great detail many rock drawings and writing in the US which could be several thousand years old and written in European and North African scripts. Especially, Celtic runes, Iberian and Libyan scripts. Also celebrating various old gods and godesses like Epona, Tanit, Anubis. Quite amazing and fascinating.
