New DNA Research about the Dead Sea Scrolls
« on: June 10, 2020, 09:37:35 am »
This article in the Scientific American is fascinating:

Quote
Mizrahi and Rechavi claim their DNA analysis offers the first “hard proof” that the Essenes, and Jewish society at the time in general, were more open to varying texts than many are today—when only one virtually identical Hebrew biblical text is read by most Jewish communities everywhere in the world. “If these scrolls were brought from outside," Mizrahi says, “it shows that Jewish society of the Second Temple period was not ‘Orthodox.’ They were open to the parallel existence of multiple versions of the very same divinely inspired text of the prophets.”
