The Great Isaiah Scroll Exhibit

One of the most significant discoveries in biblical archaeology occurred in a remote valley in Israel nearly 75 years ago. In the caves of Qumran, near the Dead Sea, an ancient repository of religious documents was discovered in 1946 by Bedouin shepherds. Among the first scrolls discovered was the most complete record of the writings of the Biblical prophet Isaiah. This scroll stunned the world, both for its age and its completeness. It pushed back the manuscript history of the Bible over 1,000 years in an instant. The content of the scroll is consistent with much younger copies, such as the Aleppo Codex (also included in Museum’s collection). Around twenty copies of the Book of Isaiah have been discovered in Qumran, but the Great Isaiah Scroll stands above them all.

A replica of the great Isaiah scroll is now on display in The Flood Museum's Bible Exhibit. A similar replica is housed in the Shrine of the Book in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. This 24 foot long scroll will be a permanent part of The Flood Museum’s Bible exhibit which includes other Dead Sea Scroll replicas obtained from the Israeli Antiquity Authority, as well as New Testament papyri, Bible period artifacts and a collection of historic Bibles, including original examples over 400 years old. The exhibit contains other Isaiah artifacts such as his seal, and that of King Hezekiah, his contemporary in Israel.


This expansion of the Bible Exhibit at The Flood Museum continues the commitment of the Museum to represent the latest historical, archaeological, geological and palaeontological evidence in support of the accuracy of the events of the Bible, and the importance of its message.

The Isaiah Scroll Exhibit is now open.
