Product Description

Some 20 fragments of copies of the book of Genesis were discovered among the Dead Sea Scrolls. This particular fragment, 4Q4 PL. 1071, from Cave 4 was written with black ink on a thin layer of reddish-brown parchment. A linen string, which bound the page to the next one, was preserved. The scroll contains only 11 lines of text (Genesis 1:18-27). It begins with the conclusion of the fourth day of creation (separation from light and darkness) and ends with the creation of man on the sixth day.

Of interesting note is a scribal correction on the fifth line. The scribe had mistakenly forgotten the letter vav (ו) but corrected his mistake by post-inserting it above the tav (ת).

The original size of the fragment is 11 x 11 cm and dates to the middle of the first century BCE.

Encased in an exquisite, acrylic frame, this scroll can be mounted on a wall or left free-standing on one’s desktop. The two long stainless steel screws act as a stand thus allowing the scrolls to stand free on a desk or table. Package includes: mounting brackets, detailed artifact description & serial number.
