Haaretz: "死海古卷中有基督教書籍"?

今日o係信譽超卓o既報紙 Haaretz 中, 竟然有個非常嚇人o既錯處, 話死海古卷中有基督教書籍. 實情當然係冇啦. 今次衰到咁應, 當然值得紀錄在案.

Rarely seen segment of the Dead Sea Scrolls to be displayed for Israel's 60th anniversary

A rarely displayed segment of the Dead Sea Scrolls will be part of an exhibition for U.S. President George W. Bush and other dignitaries attending Israel's 60th anniversary celebrations next month, a museum official said Wednesday.

The ancient manuscripts date back over 2,000 years and contain almost the full text of the Jewish Bible, as well as early Christian texts.

The segment on display will be from Psalm 133. It reads: Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.

There are about 1,000 segments of the ancient scroll. Eight pieces are on permanent display at the Israel Museum and the rest, including Psalm 133, are kept by the Israel Antiquities Authority and rarely shown, a spokesman said Wednesday.

Many of the fragments were found in a cave next to the Dead Sea. Others were bought from collectors of ancient artifacts.

Study of the scrolls has been going on for decades, and some scientists complain that fragments of the scrolls have been given to too few experts, drawing out the process of analyzing them.
