Hickory – The “greatest archaeological find of the 20th c.” in the Dead Sea Scrolls will be discussed in a free public event, along with its impact on the reliability of the Old Testament Scriptures. Hickory Church of Christ invites everyone to hear an informative speaker in its Mini-Lectureship on the Dead Sea Scrolls. With the Scrolls, our oldest Old Testament texts are moved back by more than 1,000 years. Come hear the amazing impact these documents that were found in 1947 have had in helping with understanding our Testament texts.

Free Childcare will be provided, along with refreshments on Friday and a free lunch on Saturday. Pre-Registration is required for the event. Register online at: www.tinyurl.com/HCOCDeadSea. Registration can also be completed by calling 828-464-4983 or by emailing office@hickorychurch.org. The registration deadline is April 9, 2023.

Attendees will learn how the Dead Sea Scrolls were found and what they tell us about the scriptures. The speaker for the Mini-Lectureship is Howard Younger, a doctoral student whose previous theological studies focused primarily on the Dead Sea Scrolls. Everyone who attends will benefit from what Mr. Younger will share. A Question-and-Answer Forum will take place after each session.
