Written between the 3rd century BCE and the 1st century CE. Among the Scrolls there are; 34 copies of Deuteronomy, 22 copies of Isaiah, 39 copies of Psalms, and Prophesies not found in the Hebrew Bible and never-before-seen Psalms of David.
Nouveau Fine Arts is proud to present a collection of Limited Edition, Museum Quality Prints, including Infra Red Images Authorized by the Israel Antiquities Authority and translated texts of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The collection showcases the Israel Antiquities Authority’s Multispectral Images of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Genesis, among the oldest known copies, the fragment of the Scroll shown here contains the description on the first three days of creation.
Apocryphon of Daniel, describes either a messianic figure or a boastful ruler who will arise as “Son of G-d” or “Son of the Most High”, like the apocalyptic redeemer in the biblical book of Daniel. The text calls to mind the New Testament proclamation of the Angel Gabriel concerning the new-born Jesus. “He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High…” (Luke I:32)
The Ten Commandments, this small scroll, preserves one of the earliest known copies of the “Ten Commandments” (the Decalogue) a central dogma in Judaism and Christianity, and the majestic description of their divine revelation at Mount Sinai.
Psalms, one of the most preserved biblical scrolls, containing 48 Psalms, including 7 that are not in the standard Masoretic version of the Bible. An additional prose passage provides one of the most ancient references to King David as the composer of the book Psalms. “and David, the son of Jesse was wise, and a light like the light of the sun.. and he wrote 3,600 Psalms.” Psalms 133. shown here, praises peace and togetherness.
The Leon Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library is an initiative of the Israel Antiquities Authority.
