"Not likely to change beliefs"

Albright, W.F.
April 1956
New Republic;4/9/56, Vol. 134 Issue 15, p19
The author discusses the Dead Sea scrolls and how their interpretation will impact the Old Testament of the Bible. The scrolls do not, the author states, in any way illuminate the life of the historical Jesus Christ and that no text is ever likely to do so. The author also believes that the scrolls will not effect Christian doctrine.
