Nearly half a century ago, archaeologists found a charred ancient scroll in the ark of a synagogue on the western shore of the Dead Sea.

The lump of carbonized parchment could not be opened or read. Its curators did nothing but conserve it, hoping that new technology might one day emerge to make the scroll legible.

Just such a technology has been perfected by computer scientists at the University of Kentucky. Working with biblical scholars in Jerusalem, they have used a computer to unfurl a digital image of the scroll. It turns out to hold a fragment identical to the Masoretic text of the Hebrew Bible and, at nearly 2,000 years old, is the earliest instance of the text.

The writing retrieved by the computer from the digital image of the unopened scroll is amazingly clear and legible, in contrast to the scroll's blackened and beaten-up exterior.

"Never in our wildest dreams did we think anything would come of it," said Pnina Shor, the head of the Dead Sea Scrolls Project at the Israel Antiquities Authority.

The scroll's content, the first two chapters of the Book of Leviticus, has consonants -- early Hebrew texts didn't specify vowels -- that are identical to those of the Masoretic text, the authoritative version of the Hebrew Bible and the one often used as the basis for translations of the Old Testament in Protestant Bibles.

Yes. Another victory for transmission of the text.

Now folks do two things, first open your bible and see if it has a copywrite name and date.

If it does, think to yourself how much had to be changed, from the original KJV, in order to be granted a copywrite.

then, if you are not afraid, ask yourself what did they change or remover or add?

The famine in Amos 8 is not of food or water, it is of The Word Of GOD.

Col, read first and second Thessalonians in the KJV, and then think, does not all Biblical prophecy have to be fulfilled?

So, just how many are still left to care?

I figure less than one out of a thousand actually has ever read all three:

The US Declaration of Independence,

The Constitution of The United States

and the Constitution of their state.

I honestly believe that the number actually reading and studying the KJV is less.

No, I didn't say that, the KJV is a translation just like the many other translations, what is uncorrupted is the Hebrew text from which the translations are taken.
