    The Mysteries of the Dead Sea Scrolls

    with Ian Werrett, Ph.D.

    Sundays, July 11 and 18 | 11:30 am


    Please join us in welcoming guest speaker, Ian Werrett, Ph.D. to Unity of Olympia. Ian will be speaking during Sunday service and then presenting two lectures to our community about the Mysteries of the Dead Sea Scrolls. We hope you will join us for this very special event. Cost: $100 per person. Please bring a brown bag lunch.


    Lecture One – Sunday, July 11, 11:30 am

    Caves and Questions: The Discovery and Contents of the Dead Sea Scrolls”


    Lecture Two – Sunday, July 18, 11:30 am

    “Sects, Movements, and Scripture: The Greco-Roman Context of the Scrolls”


    Course Description: In 1947, in a cave along the northwest shore of the Dead Sea, a young Bedouin shepherd from Bethlehem made one of the most important archaeological finds of the 20th century – the so-called Dead Sea Scrolls. In the ensuing years, archaeologists and Bedouin succeeded in recovering over nine-hundred scrolls from a total of eleven caves near an ancient site known as Khirbet Qumran. The discovery of these ancient Jewish texts, which include the oldest known copies of the books of the Old Testament, have completely revolutionized our understanding of Second Temple Judaism, the compositional history of the Hebrew Bible, and the era in which the early Christian community came into existence. As a brief introduction to the Dead Sea Scrolls, this two-part lecture series will focus on the discovery of the scrolls, their contents, major themes, and the larger world in which these texts were collected and composed.


    Biography:Ian Werrett is a Professor of Religious Studies at Saint Martin's University and an internationally recognized expert on the Dead Sea Scrolls. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of St. Andrews in Biblical Studies and Second Temple Judaism (2006) and has published articles on Jewish purity practices, Greco-Roman libraries, and literacy in the ancient world. Werrett has worked on the Dead Sea Scrolls in Jerusalem, acted as a member of the Pacific Science Center’s Dead Sea Scrolls Speaker’s Bureau, and published a monograph with Brill Academic Publishers entitled Ritual Purity and the Dead Sea Scrolls (2007).

    This year’s summer party will be "Clean & Easy" for our annual picnic on Sunday August 22, right after the church service. Join friends, family and meet others for lunch. Tables will set up inside and out so people can distance as necessary for personal comfort and safety. 

    A buffet of sandwiches, salads, chips, drinks and cake will be served. A donation of $5.00 is requested for each person, but you are invited to give as much as you want. There is no need to bring anything except for your open heart and hopefully your sunglasses. 

    Mark your calendars, you don't want to miss it!
