Since their initial discovery in 1947, the ancient scrolls found in caves near the Dead Sea have stirred public curiosity. For Latter-day Saints, whose scriptural tradition speaks of sacred records to come forth in the last days, the Dead Sea Scrolls naturally give rise to questions such as:
Are there references to Christ or Christianity in the scrolls?
Do the scrolls contain scripture missing from the Bible?
Is the plan of salvation attested in the scrolls?
Do the scrolls refer to Joseph Smith or other latter-day figures?
The Dead Sea Scrolls:Questions and Responses for Latter-day Saints,/i> succinctly deals with these and other questions on topics of particular interest to LDS readers. These topics are based on actual questions that Latter-day Saints have asked the authors as they have taught classes at Brigham Young University, shared their research at professional symposia, and spoken in other settings.
