The Dead Sea Scrolls and Psalm 51: Scripture Study on Zoom – June 24, 2021

Facilitator: Lynn Mills

Date: Thursday June 24, 2021

Time: 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. EDT (9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. CST/MDT)

This workshop, which will be lead by Lynn Mills live on Zoom from Dublin Ireland, will take a close look at Psalm 51  (often called the psalm of psalms), identifying key elements and themes such as repentance, cleansing, and transformation before exploring how these themes are picked up and repeated in the texts of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Although perhaps not as entertaining as Raiders of the Lost Ark, the discovery of 2000-year-old scrolls in hidden caves in the desert of Palestine in 1947 is one of the most important archaeological finds of the last century. These manuscripts were hidden in a time of war and they were found 1900 years later in a time of war.  This will be a hands on experience -please have coloured pencils, pens or highlighters at hand (min 4-8 colours) to assist you in participating in this workshop.

Cost: $40
