      Dead Sea Scrolls & the Bible: Ancient Artifacts, Timeless Treasures
      July 2, 2012 - January 13, 2013.

      They’re the greatest manuscript discovery of the 20th century—and they’re in Fort Worth for just six months. Dead Sea Scrolls & the Bible is your once-in-a-lifetime chance to view 16 actual fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls—including eight being exhibited publicly for the first time in history. Come view the 2,000-year-old Dead Sea Scroll fragments—including biblical passages from Exodus, the Psalms and Daniel—along with other ancient artifacts and interactive kiosks that illuminate this archaeological find. You'll walk through a replica of one of the original caves where the scrolls were found. You'll check out actual excavation tools from the original site. And in the specially-designed scriptorium, you'll have the chance to view the scrolls as scholars do now, as high-definition images that reveal even the thickness of the ink. Check out this chance to see rare artifacts—including a portion of a Gutenberg Bible and a 1611 King James Bible—and take the time to enjoy the shade of a giant, authentic Bedouin tent made of goat hair, or get your hands dirty in the simulated archaeological dig located just outside the exhibition.
