The Dead Sea Scrolls: Then and Now

Thursday, June 21, 2018 • 8 Tammuz 5778

1:00 PM - 2:30 PMB'nai Havurah

B'nai Havurah and Havurah Ben Tzion invite you to join us in creating an adult community within B’nai Havurah that meets every other month for a variety of thought-provoking programs. The second event, led by DU's Center for Judaic Studies Program Manager, Amy Balogh, is focused on the Dead Sea Scrolls. 

Since their initial discovery in 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls have been the subject of intrigue for countless people around the world. These texts present an otherwise unknown episode in Jewish history and together act as a missing link that helps us better understand the nature of ancient Judaism, the historical context in which Christianity emerged, and the history of the Bible as a book. Join us as Dr. Amy Balogh (DU) speaks about the archeological, historical, and religious significance of the Dead Sea Scrolls, as well as how the scrolls have been conserved and made available to us today.

 

Light snacks and beverages will be served. Please call the office at 303-388-4441 or register below. 

 

Dr. Amy L. Balogh currently serves as Program Manager at the University of Denver’s Center for Judaic Studies, and as Adjunct Professor in Religious & Judaic Studies. She is also Visiting Professor of Judaism at Colorado College and a frequent contributor to Lexham Press, a division of Logos Bible Software. Dr. Balogh’s areas of expertise are the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament or Tanak) and early Judaism, including the history of the Bible as a book.
