Over at Art Boulet’s blog, he quotes the following historical recap about the Dead Sea Scrolls from Glenn Beck’s radio show:
When Constantine decided that he was going to cobble together an army, he did the Council of Nicaea, right, pat? Council of Nicaea, and what they did is brought all of the religious figures together, all the Christians, and they said, â€œOK, letâ€™s put together the Apostlesâ€™ Creed, letâ€™s, you know, you guys do it. and so they brought all their religious Scripture together, thatâ€™s when the Bible was first bound and everything else. and then they said, â€œAnybody who disagrees with this is a heretic and off with their head!â€
Well thatâ€™s what the Dead Sea Scrolls are. Dead Sea Scrolls are those Scriptures that people had at the time that, they said, â€œThey are destroying all of this truth.â€ whether itâ€™s truth or not is up to the individual, but that, at that time those people thought that this was something that needed to be preserved. and so they rolled up the scrolls and put them in clay pots and they, they put them in the back of caves. no one couldÂ find them. they were hidden Scripture because everything was being destroyed that disagreed with the Council of Nicaea and Constantine.
Thatâ€™s what those things are.
