On Saturday, “Dead Sea Scrolls: Life and Faith in Ancient Times” exhibit will open at the Franklin Institute. The exhibit features some of the oldest examples of Jewish scripture. The scripture comes from 972 parchments and papyrus fragments found in 1947 by a Palestinian goatherder in caves near the Dead Sea. They survived in the desert for more than 2,000 years and will now be on display in Philly seven days a week through mid-October. [Inquirer]
