Dead Sea Scroll to go on display at the Museum of Art in Fort LauderdaleBreaking News
"Cradle of Christianity," an exhibit created by the Israel Museum, will boast objects that have never before left the Holy Land, museum officials said Tuesday.
They will include:
The famed Temple Scroll, one of the Dead Sea Scrolls that rocked the biblical world with their discovery in the Judean desert in 1947.
An inscription stone with the name of Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor who condemned Jesus to death, according to the New Testament.
The burial box of Caiaphas, the high priest who the Bible records as handing Jesus over to Pilate.
The exhibit, set for Dec. 7 through April 15, will show the roots of Christianity in Judaism, and how the faiths influenced each other, museum officials said.
