25 New ‘Dead Sea Scrolls‘ Revealed

By Owen Jarus, Live Science Contributor

More than 25 previously unpublished “Dead Sea Scroll” fragments, dating back 2,000 years and holding text from the Hebrew Bible, have been brought to light, their contents detailed in two new books.

The various scroll fragments record parts of the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Samuel, Ruth, Kings, Micah, Nehemiah, Jeremiah, Joel, Joshua, Judges, Proverbs, Numbers, Psalms, Ezekiel and Jonah. The Qumran caves ? where the Dead Sea Scrolls were first discovered ? had yet to yield any fragments from the Book of Nehemiah; if this newly revealed fragment is authenticated it would be the first.
