dead sea scroll in stone pt3
continuing our highlight on this discovery, here is another picture of the stone from times online:
in part 2, we mentioned that israel knohl, Yhezkel Kaufmann professor of the Bible at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, has presented an abstract of the stone at a recent seminar. below is the link to his translation of the writing on the stone which is also called gabriel's revelation. knohl insists that his translation (especially line 80) speaks about the cocnept of a resurrected messiah. if true, then the christian's claim of jesus as a resurrected messiah is no longer unique (but read ben witherington's refut in the times online article above).
