Enjoyed this "discovery" of the Dead Sea Scrolls and of the Messiah they pointed to. Lovely!
Very realistic account!

Really great story, told with an exceptional sense of time and place in history. Great job.

Realistic dialogue, convincing and genuine. (A little polishing here and there re: commas and apostrophe, but otherwise well-written.)

oh, I love the depth of this, you not only told the story of finding the scrolls, but also had a story that included the message from Isaiah 53. Wonderful!

I enjoyed this a lot. Very nice practical use of Scripture. You brought it to life for the reader. Right on topic, great title.

I love this! It brings to life what I've written for this week's challenge about ancient manuscripts and how they are authenticated. The sense of awe is expressed very well in your writing.
Even beyond the beautiful way you presented the discovery of the manuscripts is the way you showed the awe. "Tell me again," was the perfect conclusion.
I find this account fascinating to read. I especially love the wording "green with age" when regarding the ancient manuscript - so complex and so full of meaning.

I loved the dialogue between the characters, and the relationship that was described through it. You created the scene well enough that I could see the manuscripts in my mind.

Great job creating the suspense and then the revelation. Good piece.
