    In this course, Professor Lawrence H. Schiffman imparts a clear understanding of what the Dead Sea Scrolls are, and even more importantly, what they are not. Indeed, everything about the Scrolls, from their long road to full publication to the haggling over dating and translation, has been shrouded in controversy. In these lectures, Professor Schiffman gives a fascinating explanation of the content of the Scrolls and the times in which the Scrolls were kept.

    Jacobus says: "A well-balanced account of the Qumran Scrolls"
    "The Dead Sea Scroll"
    Overall

    I think a better title would have been: The History surrounding the Dead Sea Scrolls. I enjoyed this course and learned a few things in the process. Prof. Schiffman spoke on the history leading up to, during, and after the scrolls were found. While this does not take away from the course in anyway, I was expecting more information about the scrolls. I had never thought to look into the history surrounding the scrolls before. If someone is thinking that this course is solely about the scrolls then they may be disappointed. I have another course on the Dead Sea Scrolls from another company and I am eager to see what they talk about and see how the different courses compare. All in all a good course to include in your library if you are in anyway interested in the Dead Sea Scrolls.
