Pagan trintarian christians LIES Regarding the Dead Sea Scrolls

1)  Some basic information regarding the Dead Sea Scrolls.  The Dead Sea scrolls comprise roughly 825-872 documents, including texts from the Hebrew Bible, discovered between 1947 and 1956 in eleven caves in and around the Wadi Qumran (near the ruins of the ancient settlement of Khirbet Qumran, on the northwest shore of the Dead Sea). The texts are of great religious and historical significance, as they are practically the only known surviving Biblical documents written before AD 100.”

2)  Pagan trintarian christian lies regarding the Dead Sea Scrolls.  Christian connections

Spanish Jesuit José O'Callaghan has argued that one fragment (7Q5) is a New Testament text from the Gospel of Mark, chapter 6, verses 52–53. In recent years this controversial assertion has been taken up again by German scholar Carsten Peter Thiede. A successful identification of this fragment as a passage from Mark would make it the earliest extant New Testament document, dating somewhere between AD 30 and 60. Opponents consider that the fragment is tiny and requires so much reconstruction (the only complete word in Greek is "και" = "and") that it could have come from a text other than Mark.

Notice the lies of these pagan trintarian christian apologists such as José O’Callaghan and Carsten Peter Thiede.  They have NOTHING to back their claims up with.  There is NO WAY for them to connect the Dead Sea Scrolls to their Corrupted New Testament.  The fragment called (7Q5) is TINY and requires TONS of reconstruction.  It evens tells us that the ONLY word in Greek is the Greek word for “and”.  That COULD have come from ALMOST ANYTHING!

 

 

3)  More LIES about the Dead Sea Scrolls pagan christians attempt to use.

Here’s some great information; “Fundamentalists often look to the Dead Sea Scrolls to confirm the accuracy of the Bible. You hear an awful lot about how the Dead Sea Scrolls confirmed the book of Isaiah.

The accuracy of the book of Isaiah makes for an impressive argument for "passing the text without error." However, Biblicists have diligently ignored the findings in cave Qumran 4. In Qumran cave 4, they found 157 fragmentary biblical texts. Among these fragments was every book of the Hebrew canon except Esther and Nehemiah (which scholars considered to as one book with Ezra at the time).

In some cases (significantly in 1-2 Samuel, Jeremiah, and Exodus), the fragments show a recession of biblical books that are different from the Masoretic tradition. They found a shorter form of Jeremiah in Hebrew, only known before in the Greek version in the Septuagint. It has becomes clear to Biblical scholars studying the Dead Sea Scrolls that most of the Masoretic tradition is a Palestinian rewording of the book.

Another fragment found at Qumran 4 is a paleo-Hebrew script dated in the early second century BCE. On the fragment is an expanded form of Exodus previously only known in Samaritan writings.

Biblical inerrantists go out of their way to ignore the differences that true Biblical scholars have identified in Qumran cave 4. The findings in cave 4 put to rest the silly notion that scribes copied the manuscripts meticulously and scrupulously without making any mistakes. The fragments at Qumran show biblical scholars made many mistakes and textual alterations were deliberate with many insertions made.

Scholars knew before the discovery at Qumran that the Masoretic version of Jeremiah was significantly different from the Greek version in the Septuagint. There are entire sections of the Masoretic text that are missing from the Septuagint. The arrangement of many sections is different. Jeremiah 27:19-22, 33:14-26, 39:3-14, and 48:45-47 are examples of sections in the Masoretic version and some modern English versions, but are not in the Septuagint. Scholars have identified at least thirty differences in the arrangements. Another example is that chapter 25:15-38 in the Masoretic text is chapter 32 in the Septuagint and the Masoretic chapter 27:1-19 appears in chapter 34 of the Septuagint.

Apologists and biblical inerrantists explained away variations to errors in translation for many years. The discovery of Qumran, especially cave 4, has made this excuse impossible to defend. The number of variants discovered and identified, the discovery of the major discrepancies, and evidence of adding and subtracting at will by scribes, makes the claim that errors are translation issues a ridiculous claim.”

Here is some more great information;

The writings in "Dead Sea Scrolls" (Qumram Codex) show vastly different "history" than what is found in the Bible. The Genesis Apocryphon (in the DSS) is considerably different than the Bible's Genesis. This scroll is dated from second century BCE to first century CE (writen on sheep hide), whereas the Bible's account post-dates this by a few centuries.

1-2 Samuel, Jeremiah, and Exodus are VASTLY different in the DSS than in the Bible. There are over 30 chances in Jeremiah alone. Entire pages worth of text is missing in the Bible and found in the DSS, while entire pages of different text exist in the Bible but are missing in the DSS.

Bible scholars have known THIS FACT for 40 years, ever since the Cave Four discoveries at Qumran.

That Fundamentalist priests and cult leaders continue to tell their victims the LIE that the DSS "validates the Bible" is PROOF POSITIVE of their deceiving, demonic nature. The FACT is, the Bible as we have it today is VASTLY different than what the original authors wrote.

Anyone who claims otherwise is ignorant.
