Dead Sea Scrolls Conference in Jerusalem: June 11-26, 2011
Tantur Ecumenical Institute Jerusalem will host an International Conference on Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls led by Dr. James H. Charlesworth June 11-26, 2011.
The conference is designed for junior professors and research students, lecturers, pastors, and others who are knowledgeable in fields of Scripture, Intertestamental Studies and/or the Dead Sea Scrolls.
The Dead Sea Scrolls, since their unusual discovery by a couple of Bedouin boys in 1947, continue to be an intense source of scholarly debate and research. Publication of the Scrolls had taken many decades, and this delay had been a source of academic controversy. But now with the full publication of the Scrolls, new research is being published each year.
Tantur Ecumenical Institute in collaboration with Dr. James H. Charlesworth is sponsoring an International Conference on Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Dr. Charlesworth has long been one of the leading international experts and Dead Sea Scrolls scholars having edited and published more than 60 books and 600 articles. He will lead the conference giving a series of eight lectures. These lectures will focus not only on information regarding the finding of the Scrolls and the present state of research, but also on how these writings have influenced our understanding of the Gospels, of Jesus in his milieu and of the Christian faith.
