ABSTRACT
The author discusses the effect that the discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls will have on Christian and Jewish faiths. The author feels that there will not be an upset between the two religions because it is erroneous to believe that the scrolls were produced by a Jewish sect that shared many common beliefs with Christianity. Also, the Teacher of Righteousness mentioned in the Qumran scrolls does not negate the unique quality of Jesus Christ.
