Dead Sea Scrolls in English

QUESTION: Where can I find the Dead Sea Scrolls in English?

ANSWER:

There isn’t any single resource which one can go to, to find the Dead Sea Scrolls in English, at least not yet. But there are some excellent resources available that translate portions of the scrolls into English. We recommend four resources. If you can get all four, you’ll have just about all of the Dead Sea Scrolls translated into English. One of the book’s titles is a bit deceiving. The Complete Dead Sea Scrolls in English does not contain the complete Dead Seas Scrolls in English. While we recommend these resources for the English-speaking student of the Dead Sea Scrolls, we do not necessarily endorse any of the scholars which compiled, edited or translated these works, nor do we endorse any of their other works. The four books are:

The Dead Sea Scrolls Translated: The Qumran Texts in English, by Florentino Martinez and Wilfred Watson.

The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible: The Oldest Known Bible Translated for the First Time Into English, by Martin Abegg, Peter Flint and Eugene Ulrich.

The Complete Dead Sea Scrolls in English by Nigel Andrews and Geza Vermes.

The Dead Sea Scrolls by Michael Wise, Martin Abegg and Edward Cook.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
