People in Denver, Colorado, are very excited about the opportunity to see an exhibit of ancient artifacts from the Land of Israel, including two Dead Sea Scrolls shown to the public for the first time.

Two fascinating manuscripts from the Dead Sea Scrolls collection will appear in public for the first time as part of the new Israel Antiquities Authority exhibition opening at the Denver Museum of Science and Nature in Denver, Colorado.

Also among the Dead Sea Scrolls on exhibit in Denver in the two rounds are biblical, extra-biblical and sectarian scrolls from the Qumran Caves, which reflect the literary richness of this collection, as well as a document from the Bar Kokhba Revolt (132–135 CE).

The Dead Sea Scrolls are considered the most important archaeological find of the 20th century, and this year marks the 70th anniversary of their discovery.
