CWB is bringing world-famous Israeli archaeologist Dr. Gabriel Barkay to Pittsburgh for a series of free community lectures on biblical archaeology. Dr. Barkay is perhaps best known for his discovery of the "Priestly Benediction Scrolls," two tiny silver scrolls containing a complete verse from the Hebrew Bible and dating from the 7th century BCE. These are the oldest examples of Biblical verses ever found, pre-dating the oldest of the Dead Sea Scrolls by 350 years.
