As he finished each scroll he would carefully wrap it linen, and place it in containers made of clay. His brother Andrew sat next to him at his small table hunched over his scroll transcribing every word exactly as it has been written in days gone by.
The chief scribe came to each table and carefully compared the scrolls making sure they were the same as those that came before. David and Andrew were now old and still they took great care in transcribing the scrolls of old.
At the end of each day David and Andrew would see that each scroll was carefully wrapped in fine linen and placed in the clay jars to preserve them. As each scroll was finished and placed in the clay jars David and Andrew carried them and place them in the caves for safe keeping.
Little did they know that one day those same scrolls they had spent their lives on transcribing so meticulously would play such an integral part in the future.
Centuries past and one day two boys tending their goats would discover those same clay jars David and his brother had so lovingly placed in those caves.
Little did they know that those scrolls would verify to the world how the universe came to be. How God would use man in such a way as to prove His existence. Yes, there are those who still deny the existence of God even with these ancient scrolls.
They became one of the finest search engines available to man and slowly they are now being placed on computers for future generations to glean and learn from.
Some academic scholars today say man put his own spin on those ancient scrolls and try to deny the authenticity of Godís Word, but too many things have happened over the centuries that in my opinion prove beyond a shadow of doubt that those scrolls are the mighty works on God Almighty Himself.
