Ancient Scroll, Secrets Revealed!

Christopher Columbus’ great, great, great grandfather inscribed a mysterious prophecy, foretelling John Glenn’s footprint on the moon, complete with the “…one small step for a man” line.  The manuscript was buried in Shakespeare’s day and won’t be found or verified for another 500 years.  Not only that, but I can make you a great deal on the Washington Monument.  Of course none of that is true, but what is true is that Isaiah wrote down accurate prophecies of world events – improbable ones – hundreds of years before they came to pass. He named names. 700 years before Jesus was born Isaiah described His birth, where He would grow up, His personality, His purpose, His crucifixion (death by piercing) and Resurrection.  At the time of Jesus’ birth, a manuscript of Isaiah’s writings existed that was about 200 years old.  Sometime during the next 60 or 70 years, this scroll was buried.  It stayed hidden for nearly 2000 years; it was not found until 1947.  Whereas most of the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in fragments, Isaiah was almost completely intact.  In this scroll, Isaiah details the hints he received from God about how God would accomplish restoring human beings to spiritual life.

English: Photographic reproduction of the Great Isaiah Scroll, the best preserved of the biblical scrolls found at Qumran. It contains the entire Book of Isaiah in Hebrew, apart from some small damaged parts. This manuscript was probably written by a scribe of the Jewish sect of the Essenes around the second century BC. It is therefore over a 1000 years older than the oldest Masoretic manuscripts. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The facts surrounding the Isaiah Scroll surpass any of the fictional imaginings of “The DaVinci Code.”

However, if Isaiah had begun his prophecy with the opening words of my last post – “Let’s review” – nobody would have read it!  There is something about those two words that summons dreadful memories from grade school and causes people to immediately back away!  I’m sorry; I won’t do it again.

But I invite you to take a look at it.  I’ve taken out the offending words and provided a link HERE.  The goal is for old Isaiah to blow your mind!
