From the caves that secreted the Dead Sea Scrolls for millennia, we see the desolate landscape of the Judean Wilderness. Through the lens of the Dead Sea Scrolls, we see an entirely new Biblical world. Author James C. VanderKam investigates what the scrolls tell us about the New Testament and its world: By knowing about ancient Judaism, we are able to understand better the origins of Christianity. Thus, the scrolls help us read the New Testament in a more informed way.
