Israel Museum ‘must-sees’

On ourĀ  journey to the Holy Land in January, our group will get to visit the world-renowned Israel Museum in Jerusalem. A couple of weeks ago in the Jerusalem Post, Wayne Stiles published a list of his top “7 must-sees at the Israel Museum” and, he adds, “why you should care.”

Take a look at his column here, and get a foretaste of the amazing archaeology in this collection and its significance for our study of biblical history. The Israel Museum’s Shrine of the Book is also the permanent home of Israel’s Dead Sea Scrolls. We will discuss the Dead Sea Scrolls here in future posts, including their discovery at Qumran in the Judean wilderness (which we’ll visit) and an upcoming opportunity to see a local exhibit of some Dead Sea Scrolls right here in the DFW area.
