What better way to introduce Haruki Murakami than through the above passage from his book “Colourless Tsukuru Tazake”.

Dr. Patrick Zukeran reviews the discovery ofand important historical findings from the Dead Sea Scrolls.The texts discovered provide clear evidence as to the accuracy of our version of the Old Testament and the care with which it was preserved.

The Story of the Scrolls

Worship at the sacred Jerusalem Temple had become corrupt, with seemingly little hope for reform.
