Hi! The article incorrectly states this site is in Israel. It is in Palestine.

What the shepherds found proved the reliability and accuracy of the bible. For instance, they found some of the manuscripts of the prophet Isaiah. Thus authenticating scripture text. Indeed, as the apostle Peter wrote ā€œā€¦ Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.ā€

And the pictures of the park are simply beautiful. Iā€™d like to visit one day. At a museum in Philly, the traveling exhibit had some of the scrolls on display about ten years ago but being in Hebrew, I could not read them.
