New Liberty Videos offers Christian DVDs for general audiences. Some of the titles are rated and some are not so be sure to use your own personal judgement. You can read the movie title description to decide if the material is over your child's head or to find out if it's a subject that you might not be ready to discuss with your child. For this review, I chose Mysteries of the Dead Sea Scrolls to watch with my 14 year old son.
Bring the history of the Bible to life with this DVD which features three parts:
- Part One is a live lecture given by Joel Lampe, a curator who leads a tour discussion on the greatest archaeological discovery of all time! A discovery which has been put back together piece by piece...the Dead Sea Scrolls.
- Part Two is a discussion on Hebrew word pictures led by Dr. Frank Seekins. In this part, discover how ancient Hebrew words are formed by using pictures to illustrate the meaning of the word. Learn how simple word pictures beautifully illustrate powerful truths found in the Scriptures.
- Part Three is titled The Forbidden Book, and is led by Dr. Craig Lampe. Discover how brave men such as John Wycliffe, Martin Luther, and William Tyndale whose obedience to the leading of God brought the Bible to the world. As you listened to Dr. Lampe, you will clearly see how God's sovereign hand has preserved the Bible throughout time.
The Dead Sea ScrollsThe Dead Sea Scrolls...it's not the most accurate term to describe this discovery since only one complete scroll was actually discovered - the Isaiah scroll. All the other pieces - 19,000 in all - had to be pieced back together into 800 unique scrolls. 600 were non-biblical and the other 200 were Old Testament Biblical scrolls. Since there are only 39 books of the Old Testament this means that there were multiple copies in this discovery by a twelve year old boy in the caves of Qumran.

Only the book of Esther was not found in the caves of Qumran!
Books for math, science, astronomy, how to practice proper hygiene, how to cook your food, and books of The Apocrypha were also part of the discovery in the caves of Qumran.
There is so much to learn about The Dead Sea Scrolls! For a long time, I have always had an interest in the history of the Bible. I've covered only a very small part of what I learned from watching Mysteries of the Dead Sea Scrolls with my son. He and I both were taken on a journey of historical significance concerning the formation of our Bible. This is a Biblical discovery that is important to all Christians.
Parts Two and Three were just as interesting! But I don't want to give away everything that you'll see on Mysteries of the Dead Sea Scrolls...check it out for yourself by ordering your own copy today!
